What's technique? SOC

Posted by Sherry Roit on Thursday, September 6, 2012 Under: Writing


 How dare I speak of technique. Clearly, I don't have one. I'm not even a consistent blogger. 

Tell me, is it better to have a set structure, a schedule; better to have an ever shifting open ended affair? Or something in between?

I don't know. You are you, I am me, and we don't fit into the same box. Therefore, I'm not actually speaking about technique.

But then again...

Where is the point that you realize whatever you're doing isn't working, and that perhaps you should try something else? I suspect that's subjective, as well. Someone else will say it's not, but I rebel at the idea, do you?

I just rebel. This may be my problem. It's quite difficult to go around your own expectations, circumvent them. Difficult to tell yourself to have a set structure, then not rebel against the very idea.

I did at last finish one of the three books I was (sort of) working on. It will be coming your way in February. I've come to the conclusion that for me, at least, technique changes with each novel. I'm not certain that's even the proper word for it, but we'll use that as summation. We could say approach, my approach. Not much difference.

My approach changed every other week. Much of it was how I approached my own mind set, if that makes any sense. And this being a very different book than the series you've known me for, that little voice that questions if I truly know what the hell I'm doing, was louder than ever.

As I definitely don't know what I'm after doing in this blog, at this point, other than giving you a glimpse (tiny, such a tiny glimpse, so you don't go insane) into my mind (at this moment and subject to change), I'll just say that I do so hope you like the new story, or even hate it (at least that's a reaction, and wow how many parenthetical are allowed in one sentence?). 

No, wait. I don't want you to hate it. 

I do suspect I need a fire lit under my ass, but when others try to do it, I resent it, unless they know how to do it without me realizing they're doing it. Which is rare. If I try to do it, I can easily laugh at myself and say whatever.

But in other news; life ain't so bad. I just need to be...hungry, again. Perhaps I need a muse...
