Lack of risk taking in writing.
|I've noticed a trend in the pieces I've read on WDC. The authors tend to err on the side of caution when writing. It seems to me that most of the pieces are written to keep the peace. I tend to think of writing a piece as the adventure itself. When I write a piece that's cuckoo crazy. I feel way better about the piece than if I had written about a safe idea.
Maybe, it's just me. I consume lines when I read them. Then as I digest the line actively looking for underlying meanings.
This might explain why I like poetry so much.
I guess I hoping to come across a writer that throws all caution into the wind.
Please, don't get me wrong I have overly enjoyed most of the works I've read on WDC. However, I want to see a fiction writer take a long walk off a short pier when writing. Use fiction as a chance to be a genius of insanity. Let fiction be so fictitious in its totality that even if it is based in some part in reality. The overall concept should be easily understood as complete fiction.
I want fiction writers to get out there like "The Naked Lunch" by William S. Burroughs. back in 1959. Then reel it back just enough so that a reader can be like whoa wtf while being intrigued.
Thank you for your time. Thank you for reading this.
