Writing can sometimes be hard even if it is “your thing.” I have had a rough time constructing the story of the BSU. As I continue to create material I find that I need to write and take breaks because generating prose is a lot different than generating material from a research perspective. I have actually done lots of research in regards to my project but a good bulk of it has been on the techniques of storytelling. The other information I used was from the interviews. My project is really a retelling of the stories I heard from my interviewees, but with a change of persepctive, proximity and point of view.
While it has been difficult to find the words I am emmersing myself in a process that requires trust. I will have to tell the story, however rough it is, and from there going on to revising will help in my story actually being shaped into the technique. More on this later, but those are some of my current challenges.
