Default  Tulpa Creation Through Story Writing
A while ago someone made a thread about how to visualize better by writing down visual traits of the tulpa. So this got me thinking.
Imagine your favourite character from any fictional work of art. For me, let's say Harry Dresden from The dresden Files. Now imagine them in any situation, imagine their response to some question or any other scene that comes trough your head. If you're anything like me, it should come very easy to you. Like knowing what a friend will say before they say it. So, I imagine making a tulpa out of Harry Dresden would be very easy for me letting me skip the whole personality stage, creating the form and a large portion of the narration but would have whatever drawbacks there are from copying a character.
Now, I write a bit from time to time and I've noticed that the same thing happens after I've wrote enough about some characters. They sort of take a life of their own. I know how they act, how they look and what they would do in any situation. I could make a tulpa out of all of my characters (but I still wouldn't have as many as some people here).
So basically , I wanna know if this works and if it would be of any use to everyone here.

What you need: To know how to write.
What I need you to do: Write a short story (around 2500 words) that is centered around your tulpa (if you don't have one that's fine, just think up a character). Go for any genre you want (romance, scifi, fantasy, crime, space opera, whatever).
I'll be creating a character from scratch to try this out. Whoever else wants to give it a try, please tell me your results, you don't have to post your story (though I would like to read it).

For Science!

RE: Tulpa Creation Trough Story Writing
I've been saying the same thing! I actually talked about this a bit in my PR. I think pen and paper roleplaying and method acting also work. But I definitely think you can write your way through personality and sentience.

This isn't the method I'm working with, because I've already gone through personality and sentience. Perhaps if I get around to making a second tulpa though.

RE: Tulpa Creation Trough Story Writing
I would like to coin an idea, well, moreso ask a question of what the both of you think.

My tulpa is relatively well formed, we're able to carry conversations, and although my visualization is incredibly decent (most of the time), I find myself faltering with the smaller details of his appearance here and there. I would like to improve this, and bond with him further during the process. Do you believe that it would be a beneficial exercise, if both the tulpa and host wrote a short story together? The host can devise the starting point, the plot, and major chunks, but the tulpa could share his hypothetical responses and actions in response to the situation. He already has his personality, but perhaps this would help to solidify it and define it more, while helping my visualization (if I write descriptively, which I plan to do) and enjoying an exercise and time spent together.

I used to write him letters often when he was still just a tiny thought, before he had a true form. I'd then read them back to him, and I really feel it helped his development, so I could see this being effective in helping my forcing altogether. Actually, a lot of the letters I'd write to him while he were young held little suggestions and tidbits on mindfulness that contributed to him being who he is today.

I believe wholeheartedly that writing can be another effective form of visualization if used properly, using in conjunction with other methods would probably increase progress even more.

Yeah, I think that would help to solidify and define personality. As for visualization, I suppose it depends on the way you write. I personally don't detail characters as much as I should, but if you do, it might be good for you.

Thanks for the feedback. Smile As you know I'm always trying to experiment with new things with my tulpa. So I'll have to give this a go sometime soon and report how it goes.

Is this just an experiment using Linkzelda's forcing techniques?

With storytelling in Linkzelda's guide, it's about developing spontaneity. This is more about personality and sentience. At least that's how I understand it.

I think doing this would definitely help with everything up to imposition. Another benefit that I recently thought about is this. Most forcing is done by thinking about stuff. You can never, however disciplined you are, keep a single thought in your head for too long. By doing something at the same time you don't allow your mind to trail off too easily.

Note that guide is still a work in progress and I have a lot more things to add onto it other than spontaneity. There's a lot of exercises I have in mind, but I'm mostly busy doing the general ones in that guide.

I had intentions for exercises related to personality, sentience, sapience, vocalization (mind-voice and auditory imposition) etc. And the more exercises there are, the more specific they are and less on being "spontaneous" and "random."

And Narration & Story Telling/Story Writing is the same as this research thread as well because I had sections that promoted users to collect their own database of genres, themes, etc. with interacting with their tulpa in many situations. Especially when the exercises themselves give you the option to type, write, or speak things out. The rules in the guide were general and meant to be broken so people can use the creativity to make a story with their tulpa (i.e. word pair association exercises or going by a certain theme(s)).

It can be flexible in tulpa creation, since that's a temporary matter, and can stack onto other things after that. And the exercises in general can be something one can do by just conventional ways of forcing (the meditation and all that without typing or writing). It's meant to be something where one does the storytelling/story writing, narrating, and does the traditional methods and can go back and forth with them.

Well, I guess this means that you came up with the idea first, which would make this thread quite redundant. Great guides by the way Linkzelda, not just that one but all of them, especially the one about self-hypnosis.
