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

  1. Notes in forest garden of the mind: seeds, seedlings, and evergreens
  2. Photos
  3. Poems
  4. Newsletter updates about trying to pursue my calling as a contemplative and philosophically-inclined creative, while supporting myself through independent meaningful work.
  5. Essays
  6. 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.

Level 1

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

Level 2

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
  • Narratives
  • Personal narratives
  • Zettels
  • Quotes
  • Poems
  • Translations
  • Other drafts
  • Outlines
  • Edited videos
  • Edited audios

Level 3

When L2 IPs are deployed to be used into projects, their synthesis create publishable (yet still intermediate) artifacts. These IPs include:

  • Essays
  • Personal essays
  • Stories
  • Poems
  • Photo essays
  • Newsletters

Level 4

The integration of L2 and L3 IPs create the ultimate publishable artifact in my life work:

  • Books

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.
