When I was in high school we read Ulysses by James Joyce and I was immediately enamored by the concept of stream of consciousness writing.  There is just something so raw and real about this type of narrative that truly spoke to me, the point of view, the punctuation, all of it is just appealing.  I feel like the stream of consciousness narrative fits my type of writing in the fact that sometimes my writing is not always coherent, it jumps from thought to thought to a whole new idea, which doesn’t always have to be a bad thing.  That’s kind of what I love about writing, is that even though there are rules to grammar and punctuation, I can manipulate punctuation and diction to best suit my needs.  Fragmented sentence?  Yes, because I felt like adding it and it sounded cool as heck.  I guess what is really cool about stream of consciousness is that it’s literally that, I write whatever I’m thinking and I don’t edit it whatsoever I just keep writing whatever crosses my mind.  But it’s hard because even as I’m writing this your name pops into my head and I wasn’t going to write about you, this isn’t even intentional I’m literally just writing the words that I am thinking right now, but your stupid smile with your stupid teeth literally frustrates me to no end, but even as I type how frustrated I am, I guess I’m just frustrated with myself for smiling right now.  I hate you, I tell you that all the time because I guess I really don’t know what else to say to you, oh how I love to write but conversing is a much different story.  Opening up is hard when I don’t know what your intentions are, everyone has their own agenda what they want to gain, what they can do to benefit themselves.  Why don’t I do that?  Why can’t I just do what I want.  Easier said than done.
