Flights of Fancy

When life lands you up in situations where it is impossible to express your emotions, what do you do? When thousands of insane ideas tumble around in your mind, gasping to be let out, what do you do? When a streak of sudden, unintentional creativity serves you up with a beautiful story, what do you do?

My mind muddles up when I think about all the wonderful ways in which people can express their feelings. Tell their story. Or someone elseโ€™s. Create something of their own.ย From nothing. To everything.

  1. Hi Diksha,

    Welcome to the blogging community! Congrats for taking the first step in sharing your creative energy and writing gift with the world wide web. This post resonates well with me (not mention gave me a couple of ideas, cheers!) and I look forward to reading about arctic abominations!

    I found this on the Community Pool, where you asking for tips. I thought I would share a couple of tips that I’ve been given, and a few things I have seen so far which may be of assistance.

    This is quite honest and you can tell how this came flowing out in bursts, but one trick to writing and engaging an audience is mastering the flow, refining your message and to be fluent. Whilst I enjoyed reading this, I did feel it was a little lengthy and lacks a little focus, hindering the fluency of the overall material. A regular post of around 500-700 is a good chunk most people will read through without a second thought, and I think it’s a good limit to set to make sure you aren’t mincing words. Obviously when you are sharing chapters of a story this may not apply so strictly, but it is however even more vital that the narrative remains on track without throwing a reader backwards and forwards.

    Anyway, I wish you all the best in your writing endeavours, and look forward to your future installments. You have a follower in me.

    1. Thank you so much for taking the time to review my blog! I really appreciate your comment. I’m so glad that you liked the message I was trying to articulate but I guess I wasn’t wrong when I thought it was a bit messy. I’ll keep your advice in mind for future posts. Thanks so much, once again!

  2. “That side dances on top of tables in crowded classrooms, sings tone-deaf at the top of her lungs and is never afraid to laugh at herself”. Happy to see you sharing that side with everyone. Let her sing; loud, proud and atonal!

  3. Bear has a vivid imagination too! That’s how my comic and infographic series started – as a way to share the images in my head with others. Being able to show others my pictures has been ridiculously exciting!

    But blogging has shown me that words, although very different to pictures, can be just as powerful in sharing a message with others. With words, I can get something going on in my head or my heart out onto a page or a screen. Then other people can read it, and it goes from the screen into *their* head and heart (hopefully!).

    Bear looks forward to reading more of your words. Hopefully not too many scary words – Bear is a bit of a scaredy-bear when it comes to horror! But we’re excited to read more of your work anyway. We are glad you have “stopped trying to make [your] stories more realistic and less dramatic”, because we LOVE your melodramatic writing!

    xx S.
