It is understandable that an abstract painting is simply abstract. You will always come face to face with it. I once had a review for my pictures a while back stating that it does not have any beginning or an end. That certain review was not meant to be a compliment or some sort bit it was, stated Jackson Pollock.
If a certain Jackson Pollock will confront you, it is either you will feel intrigued or mesmerized. You cannot call his works classical. On his work, he will trace lines over and over again. He will then begin on the same exact spot on the opposite end when he reaches the other end of a painting.
The works of Jackson Pollocks is endless.
I become aware that I am becoming more like Pollock every time I am writing my fiction. Usually in writing my fictions, I used to have problems with my endings. How will I end my fiction? Will I finish it by killing my characters? Will my story end on a happy note? The ending of my fiction will always have these common questions that is in need of answers.
Endings do not need to be an issue, this is what Jackson Pollock taught me.
The most important thing that will matter to both the audience and to the characters of your fiction is the consistency of your narrative. On the beginning of your narrative, if you introduce someone or something, you must follow it up on the third part of your story.
If you put your focus too much on the ending of the fiction, you will lose track of the main point of your story. A finished story that awfully messy and insanely linear is a result if you continue on those things.
In creating a character for your narrative, you must have a wide imagination. For example, the character you are creating is a dental practitioner at Grand Family Dentistry. You can always make the character more unique by adding that during his spare time, this eccentric dentist solves mysteries.
The ending is not always an issue especially on the course of a narrative where a lot of question will arise. The development of the characters through different events on the narrative the only thing that matters the most.
Your narrative will have a stereotypical plot if you focus on how the dentist uncovers the mystery of the killer and on how he did it. When you don’t avoid these things, you will develop a story that is very predictable.
Everything will fall into place if you will focus on the evolution of your main character throughout the course of various events in the story. Jackson Pollock knows that you will find joy in creating the characters and the various events on the story in the act of doing it and not on the end of the product. Jackson Pollock’s method has proven this.
