I just wrote a new blog post. It took me about 1-2 hours. I sat down and wrote. It happened quickly but only because I've been accumulating the evidence, knowledge, and information since December 2020. It reminded me of how some of my writings come so easily. What you do not see is that the content has been sitting in my mind's background waiting for an opportune time to get into formation and emerge.
So this blog post was posted on my therapy stop blog: https://therapystop.wordpress.com/2021/10/16/think-carefully-before-considering-orthodontics/
It is a controversial piece of writing. If I were the Shuyi, fresh out of church, a couple of years ago, I would not have had the guts to write this. To write something that may damage the image or reputation or hurt the businesses of people that I know and care about is just not something the old Shuyi dared to do. But as I mature as a person, and understand my life purpose and direction more, I become more comfortable being myself. And this relates to a core part of my personality that challenges norms and mainstream knowledge. I very naturally question things that most people take for granted. So this comes out clearly in the things that I write. And I have learned to embrace it, even if it makes some people uncomfortable.
I hope you'll enjoy reading this. Linking John F Kennedy's back brace to my core idea was very fun for me. Because his assassination being aided by his inability to protect himself because of his back brace is a not common knowledge and even if someone read it, it won't stick in their mind, unless they research into these things, like I do. So to be able to use it as an analogy and hook people into my article this way, was really fun as a writer to do. It's like indirectly linking "politics" to health. It really helps as a writer if you read widely in the areas that you care about for fun, as you will discover such things like I have and it will help you write things that no one has ever thought of before. And that is pretty fun!
I also repackaged knowledge in a new way. The main reason for doing this is that my target audience are people who are knew to this topic and never heard of orthodontics being harmful or the craniosacral rhythm existing. So I wrote in a way that doesn't use what others normally use to describe these things. But I deconstructed knowledge and repackaged it in a new way. Yah, mainly cause I want people who are new to this to read it.
