WORLD WAR TWO STOPS A DEPRESSION AND CREATES A FAMOUS WRITER
“When I write I can shake off my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived. The nicest part is being able to write down all my thoughts and feelings; otherwise, I’d suffocate. But, and that’s the big question, will I ever be able to write something great. Will I ever become a journalist or writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts ideals and fantasies. You’ve known for a long time that my greatest wish is to be a journalist, and later on a famous writer. In any case, I’d like to publish a book” states Anne Frank in her diary.
Freestyle writing is like brainstorming. You just write down words, not sentences, but words. Crap. The words sometimes turn into sentences. I forgot about that. Sometimes you do both. Crap.
Freestyle writing is designed to organize the thoughts in your mind. You can thow the writing away when you are done, or not. The benefit of freestyle writing is it makes you think better. Maybe, another benefit (not likely) is it gets published.
How does freestyle writing progress over time? First, like Punk Rock music- raw and in your face, then subtle like champagne jazz. Look for themes in your freestyle. Do certain words keep popping up? Cuss words? People’s names? Illegal thoughts? Can thoughts be illegal? Can you copy someone elses writing and have it still be freestyle? Can you?
Isn’t journaling the same as freestyle? No, yes, it can be. Are they a recordation of events? They can be. Are they accurate? They can be. Should you judge your freestyle writing? You can. Does it matter? It can. If it matters should you care? Maybe. Just keep writing.
What if someone reads it? Keep writing. Isn’t that personal? Yes. Do people really take an interest in your journals? They might. Can your journaling become an international event and shut down the country? If you are a politician, yes. If not, we’ll see.
“Night after night, green and gray military vehicles cruise the streets. It is impossible to escape their clutches unless you go into hiding. No one is spared. The sick, the ederly, children, babies and pregnant women-all are marched to their death,” states Anne Frank.
