As part of a new blog and professional website, I'm going to look into the use of 'symbol', 'archetype' and 'trigger' in contemporary writing. I have always believed in a "Meta-Story", an underlying source of inspiration in human culture that can be triggered by the right characters, words and imagery. Hopefully, the lessons developed will be enduring guidelines for the art of fictional and non-fictional writing. This thread will be the Iwaku version, with some articles going to my main blog if they prove universal enough. Feel free to suggest article topics. I'll be happy to take up a good debate if it fits my philosophy.
