the mother of campbell

We were thrashing a narrative for an exhibition on fences today. In the midst of heated argument I looked at the sequence and decided that a narrative sequence is a lot like love.

Linear narrative

Perception -the guy and the girl see each other and things fit into their general idea of stuff.
Kinds - All kinds of ideas cross your mind as you try to grasp whats happening.
Functions - You establish contact and get involved in a dialouge.
Descripition - You talk about deeper things in life- experiences you had
Cost - you evaluate the statistics.
Needs - You feel the need and understand that the other person needs it too.
Opnions - "Oh my god" you say . you've worked yourself up to a frenzy.
Solutions - you conclude it with a bang.

A parellel narrative is like thinking about another person while having sex.
Tidbits in an narrative is like a phone call from your parents while you are having sex.
Non Linear narrative is having sex and then getting to know the other person.
