I write about my thoughts and experiences. Specifically, I write about my life stories, studies, and walks. Living, studying, and walking produce the first level of Intermediate packets, which are then converted into higher-level packets. All of these packets serve one thing: the creation of books.
Here are creative artifacts I want to produce
- Notes in forest garden of the mind: seeds, seedlings, and evergreens
- Newsletter updates about trying to pursue my calling as a contemplative and philosophically-inclined creative, while supporting myself through independent meaningful work.
- Books (I want to create beautiful books that combine photographs, narratives, and poems, basically the artifacts I produce)
Here are the artifacts in different stages of my creative process.
L1 IPs are the inputs captured through several inboxes (camera, journal, etc.). These inputs need to be processed. These IPs include:
- Unedited photos
- Journal entries
- Fleeting notes
- Unedited videos
- Unedited audios
When L1 IPs are processed and storied, they become L2 IPs. These IPs are resources that are easily accessible and ready to be deployed for any projects. These IPs include:
- Edited photos
- Personal narratives
- Other drafts
- Edited videos
- Edited audios
When L2 IPs are deployed to be used into projects, their synthesis create publishable (yet still intermediate) artifacts. These IPs include:
- Personal essays
- Photo essays
The integration of L2 and L3 IPs create the ultimate publishable artifact in my life work:
I want to write and create beautiful non-fiction books that combine narrative, personal narratives, philosophy, culture, history, photos, quotes, prose, and translations.
My idea is to write several books that tackle the most important topics I care about that pieced together could illuminate the worldview I am building.
