The Beginners Guide To Writers (From Step 1)

How Did Jackson Pollock Teach Me To Write

It is understandable that an abstract painting is simply abstract. You will always come face to face with it. My pictures were described as lacking of a start of finish by a review that I once had in the past. Jackson Pollock, the reviewer, stated that it was not meant to be a compliment.

You will feel mesmerized or intrigued if you are confronted by a certain Jackson Pollock. You cannot call his works classical. He will not stop tracing lines on his works. What he usually do is start from one end then once he reaches the other end, he will the start again at the other en on the same exact spot.

The works of Jackson Pollocks is endless.

I become aware that I am becoming more like Pollock every time I am writing my fiction. I used to have problems with my endings usually when I write my fictions. Questions like where to finish is always a concern. Do I kill my characters? Will my story end on a happy note? Every time I write, these questions will always be present about the ending of my fiction.

Well one thing that Jackson Pollock taught me is that endings do not matter.

Your audiences and the characters of your fiction will have an impact on the most important thing about your story, its consistency. On the beginning of your narrative, if you introduce someone or something, you must follow it up on the third part of your story.

If you put your focus too much on the ending of the fiction, you will lose track of the main point of your story. If you continue on doing this, you will then create a narrative that is insanely linear and also awfully messy.

Another thing to keep in mind is to have a wide imagination in character creation. For example, the character you are creating is a dental practitioner at Grand Family Dentistry. Making the character unique is one thing like introducing the dentist as eccentric and that he solves mysteries during his free time.

The ending does not always matter in a narrative with a course where you ask “who’s done it?” The important thing that matters is on how the characters will develop through several events on the narrative,

You will develop stereotypical plot on the narrative if you focus on how the dentist will be able to catch and who the killer is. By doing this you are will be writing a very predictable outcome of the story.

By focusing on how the dentist evolved around the course of various events in the story, everything will then fall into place. Jackson Pollock knows that you will find joy in creating the characters and the various events on the story in the act of doing it and not on the end of the product. Jackson Pollock’s method has proven this.
