Everything begins, continues, and ends with thought. In the process of creating, we are constantly thinking. The goal is to not overthink by second guessing our first mind with each step of the process. If we decide we love what we have done, then the love should complete things.-Henery X

The Process (Part 2)

In The Beginning….


What’s the definition of a literary masterpiece? Well, this would depend on the person or people viewing the work of art. Right?


The one who creates is the first to view their creation. The person who is making visual a vision they seen with their mind’s eye. The goal is to duplicate what was mentally seen, to the point it is the image itself. But even if we accomplish this task, it won’t automatically conclude the creation is a literary masterpiece. Sure, it’s a job well done transforming a thought into something tangible, but will it serve a purpose beyond mere existence? Below are my thoughts on what I believe we can do to have our creations deemed irresistible. Remember. I’m not here to convince you to believe. I’m here to offer you something else to consider.


Intent


Before we create, we should always ask ourselves, “why do I want to do this?” Our “why” should always dictate our “what.” What we write has to align with our intent. So, for example. If I’m out to help a person believe in themselves without doubt, my content must reflect this. I would first go with what doubting in ourselves brings about, and then counter with what believing in ourselves brings about. The goal is to first show the person we can relate to the situation. If we can show that we comprehend the situation, they will be more likely to keep reading. There’s nothing more appealing than an example of a personal experience. When we can show what having unwavering belief has done for us, it will leave others eager to believe in themselves. So, don’t be hesitant in using your life experiences to help with driving your intent home.


Word Selection


Creating compelling content is like putting a puzzle together. Only the right pieces will get the job done. There are so many words to choose from but, every word won’t work for what we’re specifically attempting to accomplish. We must be selective with our words, they must align with our intent. Remember. Our why should always dictate our what. Just because we feel a word would work best doesn’t mean it will. Let your “why” be your guide in this portion of the process.


Word Placement


How do we know the words we selected are right for this specific assignment? Well, we’ll need to read out loud what we have written. There has to be a certain tone in the flow, a natural sound that won’t just be heard but just as important, felt as well. Though the person may just be reading the words, the experience can, and should, be much deeper. Remember. We’re out to create a literary masterpiece here. So, with this being the case, there should be layers to the content. It should affect all five senses. Leave the reader feeling as if they can, and should, do everything they desire. This is when we know we have accomplished our goal. I know you’re probably wondering, “How will we know we have accomplished our goal?” Well, it goes back to the beginning of this offering: “The one who creates is the first to view their creation.” So, how does your creation leave you feeling after you read it?


Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge my offering. May all you deserve and desire flow abundantly into your life, as a river does into a sea.


Remember. I’m not here to convince you to believe. I’m here to offer you something else to consider.


May we never lose our desire to outdo what we’ve already done.


Continue to be a lighthouse for all those who feel lost in the sea of life.


Peace, Love, and the utmost Respect.
