And since sleep is is not and rain and wind are was it is not Yet the wagon is because when the wagon is was Addie Bundren will not be And Jewel is so Addie Bundren must be And then I must be or I could not empty myself for sleep in a strange room And so if I am not emptied yet I am is There are people who actually like thisSeriously though I m pretty sure I get it I just don t like it There is a family and each one is a reflection of a way of living or in some cases a way of dying Anse is the woe is me type and Addie is the Serve your purpose and die type and that s all well and good and it s a pretty cool idea for a book I just don t like Faulkner Do you know that skill has very little to do with the process of inventing a concept I m still not entirely convinced that Faulkner is the genius he is made out to be In fact I m not entirely convinced I should like him at all Based off his biography he is kind of a pathetic lying failure so what am I supposed to think of his writingStream of consciousness is one thing writing in Faulkner s way is another Scenes are dropped onto our heads in ways we cannot comprehend and actions are portrayed without explanation And do you know the unfairest cut of all Faulkner knows what he is trying to say he knows all about these characters he just isn t showing us anything An example originally there were no names at the beginning of the chapters Yeah no kidding He just wrote this shit with no explanation of our speaker and expected us to figure it out That is not genius Writing is about making a connection to a stranger bridging a gap of confusion to create understanding and to share an idea a theme an image with thousands or millions of people who you ve never met Faulkner writes in jargon he understands with little to no respect for the reader and I can t forgive him for it If you don t believe me then write something Write a short story Write 3 or 4 or 5 pages Flesh out the characters and their histories and their conflicts Got it Okay now when you are writing a scene with multiple people use only the pronoun he You will know who you are talking about do we Is that good writing No it isn tIt is easy to be confusing It is easy to write something beautiful and understandable for yourself It s hard to write universal words which we can all connect Good idea Faulkner poor performance
