Writing

+ 100 buzzes
Writing is a medium of human communication that represents language and emotion through the inscription or recording of signs and symbols. In most languages, writing is a complement to speech or spoken language. Writing is not a language but a form of technology that developed as tools developed with human society. Within a language system, writing relies on many of the same structures as speech, such as vocabulary, grammar and semantics, with the added dependency of a system of signs or symbols. The result of writing is generally called text, and the recipient of text is called a reader.

    You can never go home again ~ which is why I never intend to. A new country every year - and never going back. You see shit in the military that none in the civilian world ever understand - eventually you just give up trying to explain it to them. It is easier to start fresh with a new name, different language and in a far away foreign land, than it is to 'integrate' back into America.

    You have an ability to paint pictures with words, so I look forword to reading more. I do not live far from where I grew up, but, it has changed vastly. Many buildings have been razed, while other structures have been built. I was a longhair teen in a 'redneck' logging town; now it is full of hobby shops, arts & crafts and even an art gallery. It now has an aire of a counter-culture hamlet long since the counter-cuture has faded. Almost like a ghostly apparition.

    #15 Hi @Renée 🐝 Cormier, sadly with GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder) thoughts do control you in a strange way. That's one of the reasons I'm in therapy working on reprogramming my brain per se. Intrusive thoughts are unwanted thoughts that play over and over like a broken record in your mind no matter what thoughts you try to replace them with, they return instantly. I never realized how much my thoughts controlled me until I sought help. That is *one* of my issues and I actually thought for a very long time that I was weak and should be able to control my thoughts- I worked hard daily w/out success and just became more worn down physically, When people are inflicted with intrusive thoughts they beat themselves up more than anyone. Logically, a person will keep saying, "This is BS, I need to stop thinking these thoughts, re-direct... think about all the positive things going on, think of wonderful memories," eg, it's only a temporary (very temporary) reprieve. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a negative Nancy no matter how it may appear when I write. I agree, we can choose our thoughts but we aren't always in control. I appreciate you taking the time to read this. :)

    You'll excuse my language, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, but one of the most therapeutic things you can do is tell your brain to "f**k off." I know it sounds crazy but our rambling minds can sometimes create panic that goes way beyond reality. Every time you feel anxious, just use those two little words. Say them to yourself or say them out loud. And just keep saying it until your brain calms down.

    Thank you for thinking so of this post @Paul Walters. And very interesting analogies indeed .. feel compelled to add a verse here arising from your reflections on writing ...and what is alluring about it.

    Mystic of this mistress....
    In the unforgiving toughness
    is the challenge to continue
    In her demands to deliver
    Is the discipline of approach
    In the chiding of the critiques
    Is the attempt to evolve
    Beyond the punishing schedules
    And in that trusting knowing
    Writers write, painters paint
    Singers sing, dancers dance
    Finding purpose in the passion
    In the artistry of creativity...
    And as art empowers in the connectivity
    Life carries on...

    @Savvy Raj Writing, she is a tough and unforgiving mistress !! She demands, except's no excuses, chides quickly, blesses rarely and punishes often...yet we continue. @CityVP 🐝 Manjit talks of voice recognition or transferring thoughts to the page in a nano second. I cant wait for that, for my fingers alas are too slow sometimes to capture the thoughts . Great post, thank you
    Savvy Raj
    15/04/2017 #14 Savvy Raj
    Every time there is a comment from you @CityVP 🐝 Manjitty one knows there is a comment which emerges from a waltzing mind that takes you on a journey and delivers you a concotion of heady turns in the flow of thoughts and thinking through beyond the maze of mundane to the relevant interconnections in the evolving patterns. (By the way Waltz happens to be one of my favourite dances.😊)
    The quote share by @Chas ✌️ Wyatt is on the dot as it touches one of my reasons for writing ... a sense of equanimity amidst arising thoughts .
    The touch of pen to paper by a writer is deeply connected to the heart and mind . And it is sadly missing in todays hifi world.But the art of writing and sharing is healing and transformative . AI has already started exploring this route although it remains to be seen how it will predict the choice of freewill.
    Like I mentioned in my reply to @Sara Jacobovici here , I also appreciate the enriching links you care to share often as a reader and I do enjoy equally in engaging and revelling in these arising thoughts shares from thinking .
    As writers here in Bebee and anywhere else would agree, in simply having a reader dance a while with your writing in his mind and in caring to express with their uniqueness makes any writer feel fulfilled as to why they write.

    The foundation of writing has been described by Chas ✌️ Wyatt in his opening comment "The act of putting pen to paper encourages pause for thought" The thought part is not in dispute, what I am tapping out now is a thought, but the writing part - that act of putting pen to paper evokes a certain relationship between the pen and the paper - neither of which exist in the digital space I am typing in right now.

    Voice recognition systems will mean that we can voice our words and create a digital representation of them. At least there is some linkage between typing and writing that we can call writing - but the next leap is voice command and after that pure telepathy - to produce words by simply thinking them and if we think that is science fiction, then we have not been looking in the development pipeline what technology now has the potential to extend.

    While we are decades away from mind-reading AI science is looking for ways of moving this from the realm of science fiction to supercomputer reality. http://www.synthetictelepathy.net/our-mission/ Compared to that state of development we today are still living in an innocent time, but we are also living in a darker time because trust is an issue today and it has to be a transformation tomorrow.

    Writing is still a freedom, an edited flow between imagination and art. At the individual level there is still beauty in the art, at the group level there is transformation in the science. Am I writer here at beBee. No. I am a thinker in a time when what we think is each our own responsibility, and if a part of that thinking expresses humanity through writing, that is a good connection. The purpose of art someone once said is to make us think. I embrace this buzz, as a thinker rather than as a writer.

    @Gloria 🐝 🐾 💫 ☕ Ochoa , perhaps an avatar is exactly what the person represented by it wants it to be. Google and Wikipedia have always been slow to catch up, and often what they have to say conflicts with what we think we know. My avatar has real meaning to me. Muppets followers will get it.
    Wikipedia says "The Muppets are an ensemble cast of puppet characters known for their self-aware, burlesque, and meta-referential style of variety-sketch comedy". The key word(s) being meta-referential. This is that a character displays awareness of being part of a dramatic work. Whether you do it using an Avatar or a Bio, this is how you display your awareness of being part of that dramatic work called "real life".

    I don't think it should be run on a contest platform. Using data analysis and market trends, books can easily be transformed to script format. The Big Five have enough data to know what the market wants. Hollywood is begging for writers, new ideas and new stories. It would be interesting to see what would happen if PRH and Lions Gate collaborated. People who make movies obviously read books, and care about what is hot on the market: Twilight, Fifty Shades, The Shack, anything Stephen King...

    A friend has a story written for the screen coached by an award winning screenwriter and playwright. She then paid for an edit by a script doctor and fell into an insider connection that is shopping her story. As that lady put it, "The people that get movies made don't read books. They read scripts."

    There's the rub. No matter how good the book is it must be translated to a script before it can get any traction and when the contests draw up to 20,000 entries that are pitched with words like, "It's a cross between Seinfeld and Star Trek..."

    @Paul Walters I think the publishers and the filmmakers need to be more intentional about it. The interesting thing is, now that you bring them up, agents would also have to be somewhat of a hybrid breed themselves, maybe being able to traverse both worlds. Hollywood seems to be dying a slow, agonizing death that is painful to watch.

    @Donna Wood Ah..the elusive film deal. I was fortunate enough five years ago when a big studio to a 2 year option on my first book Final Diagnosis. Oh how excited I was, skipping down the street and mentally spending the royalties. Two years came and went without a peep and the fellow who worked at the studio who tokk on the option was no longer there when I called...Oh dear! The trick is to have an agent and getting an agent is akin to the Pope inviting you to a one on one private mass. I wrote a piece on this ( on beBEE ) entitled , "Finding an agent is like trying to catch the wind." Some of the reviews I have received , i.e. Boston Globe said , and I quote, " A rollicking ride, can't wait for the movie" Yup, Hollywood is all out of ideas and you are dead right there is a mountain of material in some great books out there. My publisher methinks is a little lazy which doesnt give me much hope...but I will keep trying !

    #17 Yes @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee like the very many things adapted from the west. Nuclear families are becoming a fashion now in India. Even when my dad wanted to an old age home not to bother us I wouldn't let him not as long as I was alive. If he were still here I would have the applied the lessons - value of time in him. I was young and carefree and even though I never spent much time with him ( work, friends,boyfriend were more important at that time) I loved him alot and he knew that I guess. But loneliness kills the old faster than their sicknesses and I am witness to that. The amount of trips to the coffee shops with my boyfriend instead it could have been my dad. I now prefer the latter now. Family is the biggest gift one can have in the world. Being miles away from them my heart beats for each of them.

    #13 @Lisa Vanderburg - no there is so much heartache in families. And when there can be reconciliation it brings much peace. I remember getting to know Mum as if for the first time - coming to accept who she was and who she wasn't, see her pain and her love in a very different way as I cared for her. It was a tough time and there were many special gifts.

    #14 Thanks @🐝 Fatima G. Williams I know in many countries it is still the norm to have young and old all living with each other. I think this is still the case in India. I hope this is renewed in the west as there is so much to gain from being family supporting one another together. Isolation and everyone living on their own has brought many challenges to society.

    #15 I know exactly what you are talking about @Cyndi wilkins And you are still raw with grief and the incredible strain of responsibility of caring for the dying and managing the care and people. It is huge work. It has been 6 years since my Mum passed over, but I still remember the complexity, the frustration, the sadness, the grief, the love, the tenderness, the raw dealing with basic body stuff, the heartache, the stress. In Australia at home care services are improving all the time. I did have some carers coming in and had to manage them like you. And to help me I ended up bringing in someone to live in, she helped me out part time and worked outside part time, in exchange for board and accomodation. She was my lifesaver. Caring for the elderly and the dying is more complicated than caring for a baby. And we are an aging population - who will care?

    I'm still going in and out of processing my recent experience with caring for my dad...Yes, I felt enormous love and made the very best of my time with him...mending fences and hearts along the way....But I also I felt enormous pain and frustration when dealing with the healthcare system here in the US...Which is very sorely lacking when it comes to 'Elder care services...There were many times I felt alone in caring for him at home...Hospice services did not come right away...and even when they did, it certainly wasn't 24/7 assistance...They were wonderful when they were here...but I had to hire very many people to assist with his care as it had become round the clock...and one has to sleep...Like you said, who takes care of the care-giver....In far too many cases, it's no one. Even with all the help, when it was eventually put in place, there was still the managing of all these folks coming and going...Eventually, exhaustion set in for me and I had to put him in a local nursing home...Thankfully, he did not have to stay there very long...RIP dad...Love you....

    #5 All those things we do for others because we just do - if we are carers, nurturers, lovers, homemakers. Like you @Lisa - you cared for your Dad, your siblings, your son. And all of that wonderful care is so needed in society and is still not valued. The skills and capabilities are not valued - and you have an amazing foundation to do what you want in the world now. I remember when my kids grew up and left home, and then I cared for my parents and they passed, all of a sudden there was just me to look after. And there is so much time left to find your dreams and create what you want for yourself and for your ongoing contribution to the world.
