Literary Triggers and Noticeable Patterns

“There will always be moments in which we second guess ourselves and the choices we’ve made. There will always be an array of unsettled “what ifs” at the back of our minds. In those moments, we make decisions that could impact our lives and our craft forever.” 

I’ve spent a lot of time trying to refine my voice as a writer. So much so that I’ve gotten to the point where I can look back at something and know exactly what I was feeling when I wrote it. I’ve always had a hefty appreciation for the raw, uncut work that remains apart of my everyday life. The pieces that inspire me to do better, and to grow as a human being. 

I’ve begun to notice the reoccurring ideals that present themselves in my work, as though every piece I write is somehow based on an individual I know, or a few of them collectively. It’s safe to say that something always triggers the way in which we convey something. However, it has just dawned on me, what mine is and what it has become. I’ve come to the realization that a lot of what I write is based on experiences I haven’t paid an incredible amount of attention to, as though my subconscious picked up on these notions that hide behind the thoughts that relay themselves as the most pressing of matters.

When I write, I try to convey what I am feeling while still allowing the reader to relate. I cannot tell you what my ultimate goal is, and I may never know. For now, I know that I will continue to set goals and meet them. I will break my patterns, source new forms of inspiration, and step outside my comfort zone. I know that I don’t want to be tied to the confinement of a genre. Come at it what may, I just want to write.

Love, Anisa Nasir (3)
