View Full Version : Journey Through My Writing Process: Experimental Story

2007-10-26, 01:22 PM
So I had an idea, I think it would be fun to have a little journey through my writing process. I usually abhor showing early drafts of anything I write, but I decided that since Iím writing an experimental piece I would experiment.

I wrote it all down from around 1:30AM last night to 3:00AM. My pen really couldnít keep up with my mind, and my handwriting is horrible as you can see. In this first draft, I call my Super-duper rough draft and itís really just there to get my idea on paper. My notebook is FILLED with super-duper rough drafts with everything from poetry to philosophy. Most of these creations donít get typed, most are practice or little fragments of storiesóscenes I thought sounded cool.

I didnít pay any attention to mechanics, grammar, or spelling, and readability for anyone but me is optional. The next draft Iím going to do later today if I have time is typing it and letting spell check get my grievous spelling errors. Along with just typing it, I make mental notes or physical notes on places that need more or need less. Following that I print it out and review it more thoroughly. When we get to that point, Iíll share it with you, my marks included, before and after.

Remember, this is my attempt at avant garde surrealism. My only real influence is my dreams (possibly your dreams if anyone else shares them with me) and surrealist French experimental films.

Warning: parts might include definite PG-13 scenes and one part about religion. If a moderate deems this against the rules (itís art, dude) I can edit it out of the playground version if I can avoid teh lock.

Some scans are upside down, I'm too lazy to fix it. I hope someone enjoys this because it's a ***** of effort.
