A look into one's personality, I say. Location tells a lot about what people may be interested in, which at times, I find surprising.
Any other elements that make a person who they are - job, interests of even why they write. I though a lot about what I wanted to tell my readers, but limit it to my creative specifics and locale.
My statement is what I think I aim at doing when I write - drawing attention to things that raise eyebrows for their being egregious. There is, of course, more on my page, but I am not willing to put it out of a fear that it would look self promotional here. But this is my take on my writing and intent:
Often enough I find that I want to make an outrageous statement to stir things up a bit. They say not to stir certain things up, so pay close attention. I have never been a big fan of paint as an artist, finding grey-scales to be enough to portray just what needs to be told. Black and White - we humans love the facts to be given to us this way. But facts and truths are two different things. FACT - some of the things I say are outrageous, off-putting and egregious 1, and egregious 2. (e·gre·gious /iˈgrējəs/Adjective 1 Outstandingly bad; shocking. 2 Remarkably good.) TRUTH, I like to be honest about that fact, especially when what comes out of my mouth, and yours, "Often enough," is number two. Black and white? No, I just painted everything I say in perspective for you, which in truth, IS REMARKABLY GOOD!
