How Nano and Pixar made me a fool!
Because who wouldn’t want to learn about storytelling from the amazing artists and directors at Pixar (for free!)?
I’ll explain. The ‘art of storytelling’ first lesson, is about how a lot of storytellers, take an emotion, something from their own life, that they want to share.
My thoughts at the time:
Nope, not me. I’m actually using writing, to escape my dreadful life. And I have no guilt, telling you the truth. THIS IS WHY I WRITE. To have a vacation from myself.
char: See my character can’t be her true self. And she feels like she is losing parts of herself. So she says she’s no longer the same person. To fix that she adapts, giving herself new meaning (even a new name and purpose). And fixating on that she forgets her grief.
Yes! I said I feel like I have lost myself. I feel I am no longer the same person. And that I am coping by giving myself a new use (being a mom). Maybe even fixating on that too much.
Does it ring a bell? I promise, it was a coincidence, I never realized what I was doing.
