by Phoenix A. Desertsong, Staff Writer, Healer & Advocate
In school, I was taught about the thesis statement. This is supposed to be what clearly and succinctly states the purpose of your writing piece. However, sometimes, a particular topic will come along which will make you find yourself without any sort of clear thesis statement. There are so many angles that you could choose to come at this particular topic with. So, trying to tie it all together with a single thesis statement seems criminal.
Many things in life simply are not so clear-cut and able to be well-presented. There are things that I think that simply are not easily labeled or given to being broken down into conveniently delineated outlines. But I know that this is a dilemma for many people.
Therefore, my thesis statement for this particular piece is this: I have no thesis statement. Sometimes, it’s OK not to have one. I’m simply writing what is coming to me. If it makes some sense to whomever reads it, wonderful. If not, at least it has been a somewhat useful exercise in writing. Sometimes, the thesis will emerge, but it won’t always. If you have an idea, just write and see where it goes. You can always work it into something clear and succinct later.
