Follow these three simple guidelines:Just Read.Just Write.Just Draw.This book is set up for a lot of free exploration. There are no rules or guidelines for any of the pages. Use it when you see fit. After a while, you'll have a book filled with ideas. These are then available for use, such as in creative writing projects or working on an art idea.Writing is a brain exercise that stimulates creativity and imagination. Your brain thinks (functions) in terms of images. You then have to select words to use that describe what it is you're thinking. "I can picture it in my mind, I just can't think of the words to say it." So, practice writing.Drawing: Paper and pencil (or pen, or crayons, or markers.) Draw away. Can't draw? Then scribble. Sketch. Put some lines down. A few dots. Be creative. (Everyone is creative. Most people tend to lose faith in their own abilities because they end up judging what they're able to do - or not do - and so they stop.) It's a collection that you created.
"A Hunger Artist" tells the story of a performance artist whose artwork is hunger: public fasting in a cage, before gawking throngs who believe, somehow, that he is a fake. As public interest in Hunger Artists fades, the protagonist takes his talent in new and dangerous directions. A classic story by the author of "The Metamorphosis."
A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is a semi-autobiographical novel by James Joyc. The story describes the formative years of the life of Stephen Dedalus, a fictional alter ego of Joyce and an allusion to the consummate craftsman of Greek mythology, Daedalus. Joyce's novel traces the intellectual and religio-philosophical awakening of young Stephen Dedalus as he begins to question and rebel against the Catholic and Irish conventions with which he has been raised. One of the greatest novels of the twentieth century.
