At the moment I’m writing my second novel (the first one is paused) and I am really euphoric about that! It is every time a really good feeling to see something happen, to see that your own story becomes a life. It is awesome. But there is a big problem. My story is huge (like many other novels) and becomes very complicated over time. Some characters have a background story, some others have special feelings, etc.
Of course you are the author, it is your story, something of your life, so you must know this all from the head. But let’s be honest, this is complete nonsense. Our brain is limited and it would be stupid if we did not take advantage of the available technology.
Today I want to introduce one of the many possibilities. I use it and love it. It is not something new and I can bet that other authors use this technique too. So it is not my technique. Only my idea to introduce it for you
Let’s start and make our own Wikipedia, but this time only about our own story…
One way, without finding a goal
Faith, without ever believing
Understanding, without ever asking
Failure, without ever starting.
The war that I saw,
the suffering without any blood,
was not with weapons
was just our thoughts.
The attacks on two, three, more sides,
drew their paths.
The song that I hear in my heart,
the pain that I see,
the conversations that can be heard,
the doors which were never open.
Confused and with no line, no path.
To believe what everyone would have thought
to understand, what everyone would have understood,
to do what everyone would have done.
I do not know,
only the good will triumph.
All sides are good,
all sides are bad,
Tolerance, a word of power, without limits,
Tolerance, a word of power, without value.
The state of the failure, the loss,
Unbearable, but without complains,
as we move away,
Failed, without ever have started.
It is the faith, without believing,
A way without ever finding a goal.
The poem above is a little poem about the ideological conflicts now happen in the world.
Let us stop this stupid war. Please.
