Alright now! I know what you’re thinking! Oooh! Fifty Shades!
But before you get your hopes too high, and start thinking that this is your lucky day. I’m not writing about the fifty shades of a monotonous color, nor am I offering you a glimpse into anything even remotely related to the color GREY.
Aww Shucks! That’s quite disheartening.
What is it with this color anyways? Maybe it symbolizes the fine line that separates black and white.
Yeah STUPID, that’s why it’s called grey…DUH!!
Well enough about this drab color. There are so many other shades that need to be discussed and analyzed.
How about the FIFTY SHADES of a writer?
Now, if you’re a writer, or know anyone who is a writer, one thought will definitely strike your delicate mind.
Writers are nowhere near NORMAL.
OHHH!! So that means that they’re ABNORMAL.
WOW genius! When did you graduate from the Ivy League School of Antonyms?
A Creative Mind knows not normality. In fact, creativity lives on the edge of How, What, When, Why, and Where. Creativity is a Question that has an unlimited scope of Answers. And these answers can only lead to more questions.
It’s said that creativity is enhanced by a spirited imagination.
According to the book Human Motivation by Robert E. Franken:
In order to be creative, you need to be able to view things in new ways or from a different perspective. Among other things, you need to be able to generate new possibilities or new alternatives. Tests of creativity measure not only the number of alternatives that people can generate but the uniqueness of those alternatives. the ability to generate alternatives or to see things uniquely does not occur by change; it is linked to other, more fundamental qualities of thinking, such as flexibility, tolerance of ambiguity or unpredictability, and the enjoyment of things heretofore unknown.
If the above words are a little too stuck-up and serious for you, then let’s reframe this in more PLAIN and SIMPLE words.
Writers are creative because they’ve got a few extra screws in their heads. And some of these screws are tighter or looser than expected.
A Writer’s Mind doesn’t think on the lines of 2+2 = 4.
In fact, for a Writer, 2+2 is probably an ambiguity in itself.
A writer doesn’t base his thoughts and actions upon boring and proven facts. There are many shades to a writer and his thinking, and each shade harbors a creative and intellectual aspect of its own.
Writers levitate in a creative space which consists of a myriad of ideas, possibilities, assumptions, theories, and exaggerations.
Is a Writer a MONOCHROME wonder? Or are there really FIFTY SHADES to a writer?
So there you have it, the first twenty-five shades of a writer.
When it comes to FIFTY SHADES of a writer, it’s better to take things easy and slow.
Wait a minute! What do I mean by EASY and SLOW?! It looks like Someone needs a MIND DETOX.
Hey Genius! What I’m trying to say is that when writers are being discussed, things can’t be rushed, especially when the topic is FIFTY SHADES OF A WRITER.
So, till we meet again, understand a writer through these various shades.
And for GOODNESS SAKE, stay the HELL away from any shade of grey!
‘Writers are creative because they’ve got a few extra screws in their heads. And some of these screws are tighter or looser than expected.’ I kind of love that lol
‘And for GOODNESS SAKE, stay the HELL away from any shade of grey!’ And I kind of can’t stop chuckling at that
‘Writers levitate in a creative space which consists of a myriad of ideas, possibilities, assumptions, theories, and exaggerations.’ Writer’s levitation. Love that. I really resonate with that. Funnily enough, making a piece cohesive can get iffy for me because it’s very ‘stream of consciousness’ or even a subconscious, really. Enlightening post, thanks for writing it ^^
Thanks for enjoying it, and for the enlightening feedback!
If you think you’re writing with a conscious mind, then your subconscious is getting the better of you. 😉
Omygod existential crisis triggered hah
