We all want to be published writers…..screen writers, producers you name it…
The fact that when a topic pops into your head – something you’re passionate about, something that makes you tick….that one thing that makes your world spin just a little…and you cannot write about it for various reasons…mainly being because that’s not what people want to see or read….BUT AGAIN who are the ones that decide this?
The main stream idea that fiction or romance has to be some conceptual idea or mold. The only reason I say this is because I was sitting in front of a blank screen on my lap top – and I have an idea….an idea of greatness, love, loss and sadness. But I was hampered to even type one word – not because the idea wasn’t there – but because it was tragically doomed before it even started.
Doomed by the media – doomed by the main stream idea of art. “AHHHH art isn’t always main stream…..” or is it? The clothes we wear – no matter how unique was once upon a time picked by someone for us, the books we read, the movies we watch – it’s not all a coincidence – its pre-planned pop culture…L wrote about having to censor even a simple blog the other day – and I find it so silly – yet understandable….We edit – we over edit – we completely change the original product.
So in the end – and ill close off with this – when we have an exceptional idea – an idea of Truth, love hope, happiness or something dark and sad – after all the editing, after all the main stream interference of change, what’s left of the original idea.
How much is yours and how much is pop culture, who do you write for?
Who truly values what you write?
Is it even you doing the writing?
