This document offers a model and corresponding annotations for converting the potency of the Distillation (see store document) into prolonged writing tasks and essays. The format encourages writers to consider their analyses as interrelated fractals, and provides a sense of direction for analytical writing. This document includes a sample analysis of Robert frost's "Out, Out--."
From the document introduction:
Fractals are infinitely complex patterns that are self-similar across different scales. They are created by repeating a simple process in an ongoing feedback loop. Once you have mastered the Distillation technique, which prompts your writing toward advanced analysis in shorter bursts, you can then transfer your skills to a platform well-suited for more developed (longer) writing tasks. The sequence moves from macro to micro. For a successful Fractal Analysis, be sure to integrate all of your tertiary writing skills: sentence variety (wizardry), verbs for academic discourse, quote integration, etc. Here’s one that I composed as a model. Note that, though distillation form is infused throughout, the structure mutates when needed- its form does not restrict, but instead guides its growth. The original analysis is on the left; commentary and explanation are on the right.
