I. Introduction; the core objective of explorative writing
STOP! Close your eyes. Breathe in, breathe out, and reopen your eyes.
Invent, Intrigue, Inspire.
That’s all it takes to become an effective writer. Invent an explorative writing technique that will establish a solid foundation for yourself and for your audience. Intrigue your audience to dive into originality of new ideas, new concepts, and new paths to pursue ahead. Inspire them to produce the same results, or possibly even better results than they have ever imagined achieving. I am willing to tell you my secrets of persuasive writing, but I must confess the hidden fact behind these motives. I am not sure how this post will turn out because I have never disclosed my writing techniques with anyone before. This is not only a step forward to intrigue and inspire my audience, but a personal gain for growth and development. Let’s begin.
II. Geographical Exploration; structural map of mental processes
Explorative writing cannot be defined, but expressed. It’s a process, not a statement. You should never think about how you feel, but feel everything that you could never think.
Imagine words, any set of words, as a population of a territory. Imagine this territory as your mental capacity for obtaining information. The feelings that you can only express with very limited words are boundaries. All these words cannot jump over the borders or boundaries of your mental capacity because you cannot express everything you feel.
Just a reminder, this post will appear to represent a textbook with the bold words, however I am doing this to provide you assistance in new vocabulary.
Let’s recap. Your territory, or mental capacity for obtaining information, is surrounded by a population of words. Therefore, precisely explaining it, words are living in your brain. These words are blocked off from traveling farther away from your brain because feelings, being boundaries, hinder your capabilities of freely expressing yourself. So, feelings represent a barrier because we lack the words to describe indescribable feelings, but how do we filter through those restrictions and make those feelings describable? Let’s face it – nothing in life is easy, but everything possible is not impossible to accomplish.
III. Describing Indescribable Feelings; progression through determination
Ladies, remember that guy who gave you the most butterflies? How do you explain those butterflies penetrating deep inside your gastrointestinal tract? How do you explain your conscious trying to escape the black abyss of hidden desires and urges when that man of your dreams is around? Maybe you would like to open up and market yourself as someone spontaneously ready to hang out with them? It’s quite simple. I will precisely explain how to achieve those results so you can express those feelings outside your territorial norms. It will take time, but progress is an invaluable measure of determination. Let your heart take the leash to walk you through this park, and don’t ever look back. Continue with no regrets!
IV: Explorative Writing; interpreting emotions through passionate expression
Okay, time to explore this effective writing technique.
Let’s start off with the basics of expression: emotions. Whether the feelings of joy, love or hate surface the mind, there has to be some understanding of how you feel about each one.
Can you describe these feelings with more depth to provide an effective delivery and presentation to your audience? Let me explain.
Take the feeling of love and joy:
I love it when he points out to me from afar while he talks to his friends. I can read his lips saying, “She’s mine.'”
Now, that’s a cute sentence, is it not? She feels accepted, especially with him. She feels loved, knowing that she’s the one. However, in my opinion, that’s too standard.
Open up to saying something like this:
My heart goes into a competitive pace every time my name rolls right of his lips. I wish his hands would wander further down to secure my hips. When our eyes meet, our noses touch, and when our lips embrace, there’s no fear to face. I am trapped inside an hour glass, drowning by the minute, wishing this moment would last. The final grain starts to descend, our smiles shift and our fingers bend. I have yet to return, my love. I have yet to fill the vacant spaces between your arms.
Well, that was different.
Wow, quite warm, right? It’s not only the delivery that makes the impact, but the passion within the context of her conveyed feelings. You felt closer to her ideas. You might have desired or envied the same physical embrace. You might have allowed your mind to wander away from what was going on. I am willing to open up your passionate hopeless romantic sides to produce results. This is explorative writing and this is when I intrigue you.
Now, let’s focus on feeling sorrow. Yeah, I’m sorry, but happy endings are over rated.
Tears run across the screen of my cell phone, and my fingers shake with overwhelming fear of rejection. The last text message he sent me tonight read, “I’m sorry. I want to keep my options open.”
Whoa, not another text message breakup!
Let’s try something more depth with sorrow:
Tears of rejection with little inspection surpass oblivious bystanders who stand tall. My heart is targeted under a passing shower of shards of glass. Fiercely ripping apart my exterior of strength and determination, just enough to pierce through my heart of false hopes and sugarcoated terms of endearment. I’m not an option, I’m a priority.
Do you feel the change? Good.
I’m off to bed. Please provide specific questions, and feedback. This was to provide you a taste of what I am capable of writing. I am willing to help you improve every step of the way. Let me answer some questions on the next How-To Guide.
Just remember: express the heart, and use the mind as a grammar Nazi!
Don’t ever think about love, feel it! Embrace, express, and excel!
