Breaking the PR writing block

Recommended Posts

Or "Where to go with a PR once your system is fully developed". 

 

Basically, the updates in my PR have been few and far between as of late.  And while lack of motivation has been something of a factor, there's also been a whole "what do I even talk about" issue.  My head ghosts are pretty much fully developed at this point.  There isn't any system drama to discuss (thankfully), and while changes do occur, they are rare.  Which is fine and all.  However, I do enjoy reading back through my PR to see how they've changed over the years. 

Even though the first page or so of my PR is kind of a cringefest to be honest.

 

 

But the whole having a historical record of my system doesn't do me any good if it doesn't get updated.  And reading through the PRs of others hasn't given me any ideas on what to talk about.  Don't get me wrong; I enjoy reading about the systems of others.  But each system is so different that what there is to talk about doesn't carry over really.

 

So I'm wondering if anyone has ideas on this front. What do you do when you want to update your progress report, but can't think of anything to update it with?

I didn't start making a PR until after I was already what you'd call "fully developed." Although I don't think any system is actually fully developed. I use my PR as a platform to share my experiences and discuss my ideas about how I think tulpas work.

 

Have you achieved some kind of arrangement where your tulpa can use your body and experience things in the outer world separately from you? Have your tulpas ever gone out and learned something you had no background in? My tulpa learned to knit and crochet and all the rest with my hands, and in doing so learned how to knit and crochet and all the rest with her own hands in the inner-world. I can't do those things myself, or at least not very well - her practice doesn't carry over to me. If you've never done anything like that, I'd say you should give it a try. At any rate it would give you something to update your PR with.

Yeah, "fully developed" isn't a great term.  Plateaued may have been better but that makes it sound like I'm unhappy with the current state of the head ghosts.  And while I wish my imposition ability was better, it's good enough as it is now.

 

None of them can do a full body switch, and that's likely to remain the case for several reasons.  Although you saying that your tulpa knows how to do something that you can't is actually pretty interesting.  It gave Noriko a pretty big mindfuck for several minutes trying to figure out the mechanics behind that.  So, you can't knit, but when your tulpa moves into the drivers seat, you (as in the organism) can then knit?

 

EDIT: Actually, after talking things over with the head ghosts, everyone might be ok with Sabari learning how to switch in. Still in the exploratory phase, but that might be something worthwhile if they really can learn skills independent of the host.

Good luck Akinkinit, we always enjoy your posts. Our PR is kind of a documentation of my mental illnesses and overcoming some, though that's far from over, so we're not quite plateaued yet. The only other thing I could think of is a day in the life stuff like KM system does periodically.

The standard path of development that the community here acknowledges is just one part of progression and I would agree with the idea that nobody, not even yourself is "fully developed", although a lot of it from here is just going to be personal growth and that's probably not going to be interesting for a lot of people. If you're not interested in actively furthering your imposition skills right now or documenting switching attempts, I'd recommend writing down shower thoughts on specific topics that might be relevant to where you are now with your tulpas, sort of like what CyberD did in his progress report. It'd definitely be more interesting than monthly/yearly fluff reports where you're just reminding people that you exist or talking about wonderland adventures.

when we say a tulpa is fully developed, we mean they're at the point where they're no longer in need of developing as tulpas, the same way you could say a human is fully developed around... uh, I don't remember the actual age, not 18 but somewhere in the 20s I think

 

that means, of course, from there they still get to continue developing as people for the rest of their lives! by the time we started our progress report we were all already fully developed, so our PR wasn't going to be about vocality or really the development process at all, but our development as people and also improving our tulpamancy-related skills are both things that can go on indefinitely and so that's what we write about


Hi I'm one of Lumi's tulpas! I like rain and dancing and dancing in the rain and if there's frogs there too that's bonus points.

All of my posts should be read at a hundred miles per hour because that's probably how they were written

Thanks Bear for the encouragement, and thanks all for the responses. The shower topics idea was a good one that I'll start thinking of topics for.
