AN ALGORITHM FOR JULY

AN ALGORITHM FOR JULY

By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

An algorithm is a set of rules or guidelines describing how to complete a task or solve a problem.
While the word receives heavy traffic in the computer and math worlds, its meaning translates into any and almost every arena of life.
I've created an algorithm for July;
A set of guidelines to enable a fresh continuance in writing.
-----
An algorithm for July:
1) Jacket your ideas.
Record two new subjects or verbs that come to your mind and explore them.
Wrap them around your mind, body, and soul and "feel" them.
Get familiar and comfortable in them.
"Wear them."
Figure out ways to enhance them and develop them.
Consult an expository, old dictionary (words had different definings in earlier days,) Thesaurus, or Word Finder to aid fresh inspiration.
Familiarize yourself with the unfamiliar.
One of my exploratory words is Algorithm.
I'm putting it to work in this writing.
Jacket your ideas and allow them to foster writing movement.
2) Utilize new resources for writing.
Speak to an expert on a theme you're working to develop.
If you're working on a "mystery," speak to an individual who works in law enforcement and pick their brain on detective work.
If you're creating a work of fiction, visit an environment conducive to its setting and create a chapter in writing there.
Writing movement is intensified and broadened when we enlist and invite resources that aid in accentuating our subject.
3) Look at your subject differently.
View your subject or theme as a kaleidoscope and "turn it" in order to see it differently.
Ask for input from others and listen intently, without interruption, to the contributions they provide you with on your subject.
Ask a child, teenager, parent, professional, and elderly individual to speak to your subject and you'll be amazed at the "turn of lens."
Variation in audience provides a variation to lens and it costs nothing.
Take advantage of it.
People love to talk and hear their own ideas being voiced.
Look at your subject differently by listening to others.
4) Yachts and Yurts are delightful messengers.
Write, think, and create in a new environment.
Explore ideas while in a rowboat or laying on a dock.
Examine your subject while gazing at an open arena of stars in the dark of night.
Climb up a tree, visit a state park, hike a new path.
Explore. Explore. Explore.
Let your feet take you where your mind will wander.
Enjoy a new environment, employ a new landscape,and write until you're fingers turn an inky blue.
An algorithm creates a writing rhythm for the pen.
Employ your mind,
Expand your ideas in the month of July.
Keep writing ...
