After learning to *see* the world, the next step is to learn to *unsee*.
A bit of a paradox, right?
5 Things You Must *Unsee* to be a Literary Genius
- Social Masks – these conceal the truth of a person, who they really are when no one (but the reader) is looking.
- Facades – The swirling mirages of everyday life that cast illusions, like settings that are much different than they appear
- Literal Meaning – Dialogue with double or triple meaning. What is *said* between and around what is actually said.
- Obvious Interpretation – Symbolic Actions or actions imbued with significance that *speak* volumes without saying a word.
- Surface Appearance – To really see we must *unsee* what is first and front, we must look behind and beyond to the essence of things.
Stories are about how the seen and unseen affect each other. Stories are about physical goals and metaphysical transformation.
You can only write what you *see*.
So see more.
