Learning To Write From Jackson Pollock

An abstract work of art is plainly abstract. You will always come face to face with it. My pictures where described to have no beginning or any end by a review a while back. Jackson Pollock, the reviewer, stated that it was not meant to be a compliment.

If a certain Jackson Pollock will confront you, it is either you will feel intrigued or mesmerized. His works, you can say, is very far from being simple. On his work, he will trace lines over and over again. He will then begin on the same exact spot on the opposite end when he reaches the other end of a painting.

You can define Jackson Pollock’s works as endless.

Every time I write my fiction, I try to be like Pollock. Usually in writing my fictions, I used to have problems with my endings. How will I end my fiction? Is it a good ending if my characters die? Will my story end on a happy note? The ending of my fiction will always have these common questions that is in need of answers.

Endings do not need to be an issue, this is what Jackson Pollock taught me.

Your audiences and the characters of your fiction will have an impact on the most important thing about your story, its consistency. If you introduce one thing in the beginning of your story, follow through with it in the third act.

Losing track of the main point of your narrative will result if you put your focus too much on your ending. A finished story that awfully messy and insanely linear is a result if you continue on those things.

In creating a character for your narrative, you must have a wide imagination. For example, the character you are creating is a dental practitioner at Grand Family Dentistry. Making the character unique is one thing like introducing the dentist as eccentric and that he solves mysteries during his free time.

The ending does not always matter in a narrative with a course where you ask “who’s done it?” The development of the characters through different events on the narrative the only thing that matters the most.

Your narrative will have a stereotypical plot if you focus on how the dentist uncovers the mystery of the killer and on how he did it. By doing this you are will be writing a very predictable outcome of the story.

By focusing on how the dentist evolved around the course of various events in the story, everything will then fall into place. The joy of the creation of characters and events on the story is seen on the act of doing it and not on the finished product, as per Jackson Pollock. Jackson Pollock’s method has proven this.
