I’ve never really been formally educated to understand what a vignette is, a lyrical piece of writing, a prose, a poem vs rhyme or sonnet and what constitutes flash fiction, micro-fiction and so forth; but I do try to learn, even though I don’t understand it.
I want to understand it, but I think it goes in one ear and out the other; I just can’t seem to absorb technicalities.
I may incorrectly be calling things on my blog “A vignette” when it isn’t, mistaking vignettes for mere philosophy and even putting philosophical prose amongst fiction rather than non-fiction without actually understanding that my philosophy was in prose format.
I don’t really know what I am talking about here, can you tell?
I am trying to be smart, but I really should try and give up trying to do things like that and just get on with it and hope for the best!
I am for all sense and purposes a creative person, its art no matter what form it is – why worry? I could be ground-breaking, doing something new and all the worry about trying to do something old could ruin it all because I was trying to be smart and technical about it.
Or I could just confuse everyone and never get anywhere…
That could happen too…
Thanks for reading…
