I've been told that postmodernism is a hodgepodge of different strains of thought that have not that much in common with each other beyond a general skepticism towards all heretofore existing metanarratives.
Which, fair, but... metanarratives are fun, though? What I want is a literary movement (temporary name: mostmodernism) whose goal is just to keep making new metanarratives and putting them in stories until we get better at them. Does that exist?
i think what happened (among other things) was, as a kid i thought it was not possible for me to grow up and end up a girl, so instead of wanting to grow up i wanted to find some weird trick to escape from what was possible?
so i didn't get a lot of practice in practical things that it would have been useful to practice, just, instead aiming for weird things that might expand what could possibly happen if i was lucky/talented enough.
I was told: to get better at drawing faces, familiarize yourself with skulls and how they relate to the faces on top of them.
So, I spent the day before yesterday drawing skulls in various orientations, yesterday trying to draw where the skull is underneath pictures of faces and correcting myself with a 3d model, and same today.
Now if I see a face, I try to figure out where the skull is.
What I'm getting at is that it feels weird brushing your teeth while picturing where your skull is in the mirror.
One subsection per snippet that I'm choosing to comment on. The fact I've always wanted to do the vertical-text-in-the-margin based numbering is completely coincidental since I only am doing it since it totally 100% makes good design sense here...
