Writing Towards Authenticity

The level of introspection needed in writing affords for occasions to forge new perspectives, by crystalizing events into formative moments to develop authenticity.  Celebrating humanity as foundation analyzes to create an increased quality of life.

Authenticity comes from an ability to empathize, and to begin developing empathy – start with themselves.  For everyone that route looks and will be different it won’t necessarily be the activity that translates into a career; unless you’re lucky.  What it should do is bring life into focus and help navigate the day-to-day big and small interactions.  It should deepen those back-and-forths, providing enriched social capital.

Writing arranges the experienced world in an analyzable narrative, exhuming and dissecting until authenticity becomes evident.  A writer digs deeper into the scene or memory, imagination is invoked to develop details – evidence – into a stranger’s profile.  As those around us become three-dimensional character’s in a narrative, the more appealing and relatable they become.  Since people create social networks based upon shared interests, backgrounds, and experiences, recognizing shared personal moments.  Recognizing shared details between people leads to connecting through mistakes and daily troubles that deep relationships with friends and family.

When the same shared details are identified in others outside the homogenous group empathy is extended, enlarging humanity.
