Umm, it's taken me some time to get this started up. I've developed a significant critical midset when it comes to writing. I think I've finally developed a healthy working set into which my work can be properly processed. I don't understand why somethings invariably happen with this set, but I've taken a strange take to things when it comes to writing. I'm still puzzled by it, but I think some extensive studies in characterization have really done wonders for the writing so far. First there's organization. I've noticed when I freewrite, a rigorous set of rules have to be followed. In composing a draft the first thing is to classify it and save it.

I've come up with a list of terms:

A mix refers to a 'mix' of ideas/images that arise in the author's mind set to paper in the heat of freewriting. Later on this piece becomes

A section, which is a more refined than a mix, and is categorized by extensive breaks in paragraphs, higher style/grammar, extensive characterization, detail and imagework, and rhetoric.

This forms a part of a domain, which is several sections put together, which can be classified as a chapter, or a 'purple patch' in a story, where everything comes together; the climax. The domain is full of high style, extensive grammar, rhetoric, or simple description.

There are also other terms:

--a sidebar, which is a bit of parenthetical information that serves to spice up language or imagery

--sedukah, a 'coming-away' from the main story, background information
--sideshadow, which is a story intertwined in the framelines of the current one.
