don’t be aggressive. be super-aggressive.

don’t be predictable (the nice word for “dull”).
don’t be one of those non-sparky people (the nice word for “dullards”) who don’t have a single creative bone in them.
don’t be what mr. hunter s. thompson used to call “a dullard, bum, and hack, hag-ridden with myopia, apathy, and complacence, and generally stuck in a bog of stagnant mediocrity.”
don’t be washed out. don’t be boring. don’t allow yourself to be less than surprising. don’t be aggressive. be super-aggresive. smash people’s apathy. give them candies, knives, juggalo faces, ice creams with jewels topping and orange buffalos that lick lamp shades in order to get them out of their comfort zone.
be a super-aggressive smart punk. ignite yourself. ignite people’s imagination. don’t forget to play. be colourful.
be a condescending & high maintenance snobbish smartass. don’t forget to be respectful. explore. go beyond the limits. dare your imagination. go over the edge. be over the top.
you’re born an original. so don’t die a fucking copy.
tease. be an overdose. be a middle finger up. be a intellectual hooligan with unlimited ammo and a licence to kill mediocrity. hijack people’s minds. be a vampire: suck their souls and then spit them into a rollercoaster full of uppers, downers, screamers, laughers.
make people say: “aaah, i wish i’ve done that” when they see a picture you took.
make people say: “damn, that was a freaking good reading” when they read a text you’ve written.
a different lover is not a sin. yeah. you’ve got it right: shock your audience from time to time. a new different approach is not a sin.
it doesn’t matter if you’re beige, black, red, yellow, green or white. it  doesn’t matter if you’re a suricate, a space monster or a pink princess. if you say things in a different way, in a way that others can’t, people will read you even if you’re a hamster, a capibara or a japanese rose.
don’t give people a simple image of what you see. give them a mirror that’s cracked. remember that creativity is taking a set of familiar elements and rearranging them in an unfamiliar way so that the audience recognises both the familiarity and the unfamiliarity. present something the audience will recognise as themselves, their lives, their dreams, but with a twist, so they’re actually a bit startled by it, or will get an extra insight from it. so don’t just give them a mirror, give them a mirror that’s craked.
respect your readers: don’t give them watered-dowm bullshits. give them something they’ve never seen/read/heard before. make them see, hear and smell things they’ve never seen, heard and smelled before. surprise them. be an entertainer. be a tease. strip down your mind. be something else. be whatever you want to be.
just don’t be predictable. (the fancy word for “dull”).

    yeeeeeess, i think i’d have to agree🙂

    “be original.
    you’re born an original. so don’t die a fucking copy.”
    I think i’m gonna have to remember that one….hehehe

    • this post is actually a self-note. or just everything i can’t be anymore.🙂 kinda stupid.

      • as for the title… at some point i took a creative writing course. for fun. and that’s what the lady teaching used to tell us all the time: “don’t be aggressive on me! be super-aggressive!” most of the people there believed she was just bitchy and mean (indeed, she loved to be harsh), but i really loved her, she was pretty awesome. oh, she also used to tell us: “shock me! make me see, hear and smell things i’ve never seen, heard and smelled before. come on… i’m waitin’… “. and she always wanted to push me over and beyond the edge. and that was fun. cause i just loved to explore. she was indeed an original, unconventional and hyper-talented lady.

        After your comment in the email i kinda guessed this might be something like a self note. I sometimes write things fro future reference. Then i read it sometime and think “oh yeah, i was supposed to stop being an idiot!”..or whatever.

        Sometimes i write things i to other people that i never intend to send to them, but i later read and see what crazy state my mind was in at the time. It can be good to remind myself🙂

        She sounds a good teacher.

        “shock me! make me see, hear and smell things i’ve never seen, heard and smelled before. come on… i’m waitin’… “

        That’s what writing should do. When i’m reading i want to feel i’m a part of what the author was writing, a part of the world they create. It’s why we read stories isn’t it..?

  2. this is a great post. made my night. 🙂

    • mr. lazy, if you don’t post smth by … sunday?… then you’ll have to post gaga’s latest video and title it: “i love you, lady gaga!”. i dare you.😀 you choose: a post… or gaga’s video. evil laugh. i can’t imagine a worse punishment than gaga. : )))
