WHEN POSITIVITY SEEMS HARD TO REACJH… I KEEP MY HEAD DOWN AND MY MOUTH SHUT… COZ IF YOURE GOIN THRU HELL… YOU JUST KEEP GOIN
Sometimes I wonder if the genius of writing, the writing that sticks with a generation - or in some cases many generations to come - comes not from what is necessarily intended or consciously composed, but from the “negative space” in the writing. I wonder if that brilliance comes from what the audience is able to infer from the writing, rather than the story itself.
Much like the saying that great discoveries in science rarely happen with an “aha!”, but actually an “oops”. If an author is passionate enough about their subject and puts enough care into it, the audience may then be able to find their own interpretations that the author may not have intended. I wonder if this is where the genius of storytelling lies.
