How Did Jackson Pollock Teach Me To Write

It is understandable that an abstract painting is simply abstract. It will always confront you. 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.

If a certain Jackson Pollock will confront you, it is either you will feel intrigued or mesmerized. Simple will cannot be defined on his works. Over and over again, he usually traces for lines on his work. He will then begin on the same exact spot on the opposite end when he reaches the other end of a painting.

The works of Jackson Pollocks is endless.

I become aware that I am becoming more like Pollock every time I am writing my fiction. Usually in writing my fictions, I used to have problems with my endings. How will I end my fiction? Do I kill my characters? Will my characters have a happy ending? The ending of my fiction will always have these common questions that is in need of answers.

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. You will then be creating a narrative that is awfully messy and insanely linear if you continue on focusing on how to end the fiction.

You must imagine how you want to create a character. For example, the character you are creating is a dental practitioner at Grand Family Dentistry. You can always make it more unique by stating that he is an eccentric dentist who at his spare time solves mysteries.

The ending is not always an issue especially on the course of a narrative where a lot of question will arise. The development of the characters through different events on the narrative the only thing that matters the most.

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. The end of the product will not give you joy in creating the story, but the joy will be seen on the act of doing it, this is understood by Jackson Pollock. The works of Jackson Pollock has proven this to be precise.
