How I speak is not what I write
In this day in age the idea of
writing is greatly misunderstood. This term is unsatisfactory or incomplete in
describing its influence on human life. I have challenged this misconception of
what this discipline is by drawing Inspiration from a literary movement called
the “Beat Generation” of the late 1950’s, which boasted a whole array of
writers such as Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, William S Burroughs and the small
army of other names.
To capture the candidness of me
speaking to my friends, I first went out and started conversations. There were
random but what was interesting of all is how I was able to sustain the inane
subject matters, even to some degree my friends were also latching onto the
crassness of our conversations.
Secondly to answer to the writing I
jotted down the casual words that I had discovered that I use a lot when
speaking. I had to keep reminding myself not to sound smart in my writing by
always stay true to the facts of my haphazard conversations.
Lastly I had to find a means to document
these events, the writing and the context of which they had happened in. This
was purely to understand this experiment to both myself as a writer, and to my
muse or audience to plugin and immediately respond in unique way.
