I’m excited to be getting to the end of this edit. (Don’t get too excited there’s a ton more editing left to do) I just wanna add one more part that’s completely missing; the hinges that hold my works of art together.
I like to think of poetry as the bridge that connects the subconscious to literature. Or from subconscious to reality. Poetry tends to answer the call of our deepest insights possibly handed down from out ancestors. Especially the works of great writers like Silvia Plath, Rimbaud, and Toni Morrison. I think they really work hard to grasp the human condition at its deepest and rawest parts and expose it all to the world. It’s not easy to do. The work it takes to find an artistic way to say deep dark thoughts is complex and inflicting. Writing itself is inflicting but to be poetic takes great boldness. So to give my triptych the hinges that allow my story to pivot open in an artistic sense will make it truly feel complete.
So between each part there will be a poetic parable or epic poem. I already have one done but I still have to complete the other one. I honestly have no idea right now how I’m going to create the hinge but I’m still developing the last part of the book. Once I have a firm grasp of the last part, I have to sit down and really think about what connects them. It’s going to take some digging but I’m excited to meet the challenge.
