Sample text

If he, perhaps, had spent the time beyond the initial creation, and crafted his creation into a refined, accomplished being, Frankenstein’s monster might have been a benevolent “monster,” and an asset to society. In the final stage of my project, I began necessary but tedious re-visioning of my creation — revisions that attempted to reach my acquired vision of excellence. This might be the most crucial element of literary creation. I believe the reckless actions of Frankenstein’s monster signal a great need for continued creation beyond the first sparks of life in a creative project, and this was indeed one of Shelley’s “points” in her work.

He identifies what he considers to be the required stages in the progress of a plot. Aristotle was first to develop an approach to literature that was focused on the reader, which stemmed from his preoccupation with drama and how it was viewed from the perspective of the audience and how it moved them. Sir Philip Sidney’s A Defence of Poesie (1580), also called An Apology for Poetry, was the first work in English writing to address literature. Sidney draws from Ovid (43 BC–AD 17), who believed in teaching through delighting or by giving pleasure, and from Horace (65–8 BC), who believed that a poem was a “speaking picture” meant to instruct and delight at the same time.

What I discovered throughout this project were the infinite means available for creating a work. We as writers are often unaware of the influences affecting the creation of our texts. I mapped out a strategy for my work by outlining each chapter of the novel, proceeding in various order, and filling in the gaps as I wrote. I often consulted with objective, experienced mentors who would help me uncover gaps I had missed in my work and continue on the path to accomplishing my creation. But while I had a clearly defined strategy, my lived experience not only as a woman but predominantly as a human being, influenced my work.
