Making the Ordinary Extraordinary

Okay, making the ordinary extraordinary. Making the finite infinite.

We take ordinary facts, incidents, events, and we write about them in a way that reveals the extraordinary.

Now go back beyond Boyle, Udall, go back further beyond infinity, beyond Dadaism and understand that all of these ideas impinge upon, direct, your writing. Now go forth in a very straight forward way.

If dealing with fiction, focus on character - actions and most importantly reactions - revealing what lies within.

If poetry, let the imagery and extended metaphor make the revelation.
