I just made a general post on my personal FB page, and it occurs to me that it might be of use from the perspective of writing.
Here’s the original post: “Sometimes, it’s good to turn our preconceptions on their head. In case you need help with that, here’s an alternate perspective …”
Now apply to your work. Take a story you’re struggling with, and turn it on its head. What assumptions are you making? What happens when you look at it a different way? You might find that you’re missing a unique and wonderful perspective. Perspective matters, in fiction and nonfiction. Take the time to examine your story–as well as someone’s else story, history, government, religion–from another angle.
After all, headstands, handstands and other inversions are GREAT for circulation.
