For some reason, I started to sink immediately. Instinct made me push the bar out to lift the nose and gain altitude. Instead, I stalled.
The kite twisted on its center and did a wing over. I plummeted toward the hill face. The keel, the point, of the hang glider hit hard rock. The kite crumpled.
My harness yanked at my chest. My helmet hit something and bounced off. Then, silence. Dead silence. Not even the sound of a breeze in the grass, and at that moment I understood what I had done wrong. The weather was a little different. I expected the updraft.
No breeze. No updraft. When I started to sink, I pushed for altitude that my mind and body told me should be there. Physics is a bitch.
Gravity always wins. My instructor clambered down the slope to me at great personal risk.
I climbed out of the wreckage. Are you all right? I had just destroyed his training rig and split his helmet almost in two. Remember the helmet bounce? Completely destroyed the helmet. His concern was for my well being. I did not have to pay a dime for his equipment. Good man. I had a powerful, good experience. The emotional impact was huge. The joy was very high. I wanted that experience again. I wanted it a lot. My mind and body remembered every detail of that experience and did everything right to have that experience again.
However, conditions had changed. Failure was inevitable. The cyclic deteriorating fallacy of personal experience works like this. We seek a result. Three more sell.

The rest garner rejections. We would probably look at the other two as well. Suppose we discover that each story had an unrequited love element, a female protagonist with red hair, and a mountain resort.
Well, that one should have the best details for allowing us to sell more since we already did the love, femred, and mountain bit. It happened during ski season at the mountain resort.
The Left Hand of Darkness
So, now we write stories that have love, femreds, winter ski resorts. In the same way that physics is a bitch, underlying principles of story are a bitch. Trial-and-error is biased in favor of the cyclic deteriorating fallacy of personal experience. In the same way making all the same moves in the hang glider resulted in a crash, isolating the apparent patterns of success from successive successful stories will result in a crash.
Unless… We are very clear that the analysis and subsequent attempts to create results must include expansive experimentation based on principles rather than emotional impressions of success or failure.
I call that playful experimentation a. Adding the ceaseless, restless part is the important bit to me.
The ceaseless, restless bit means that I must constantly test my world and my boundaries. Instead, I have bent genres and searched for how one informs another. I have assumed, sometimes incorrectly, that each genre has its own tricks and techniques to teach me.
I have assumed that experimentation across genres would bring me insights and techniques that could not be had as long as I returned to the same hill where I had success and attempted to fly in exactly the same way as when I had that success.
To beat the fallacy of cyclic deteriorating personal experience, apply the principle of unsupervised play. In fact, to keep writing from getting stale, I recommend many of the techniques used by children.
In another essay, I describe the parallel play process, which in turn came from the restless, ceaseless experimentation with words and tales and forms and processes. Playful experimentation requires several things adults are often in short supply of.
First, it requires the ability to completely divorce oneself from any sense of risk. That is, the story a writer is playing with must not be under deadline.
It must not be part of an expectation of material or pride success. It must not be for this magazine, that anthology, to that publisher. Playful experimentation requires the worry-free mindset of a child exploring a newly discovered, vacant field.
He views himself as "a stallion in harness with a mule", chuckles at the idea of a pregnant King. He tries to view the Gethenians as male, and is appalled at all the femininity that he sees in them, feeling that it is wrong, inferior, alien to him.
In the world of wholeness, not of duality, he feels lost and isolated without the familiar stark division that rules our lives. After all, the first question that people immediately ask at birth is - boy or girl? Man or woman? They received death threats for that attempt, so ingrained is the gender division among us]. Ai is not a bad guy.
He is just lost, confused, and isolated - a human, in the other words. He is so out of his comfort zone he does not comprehend how to deal with the society that he views as passive, where there is less competitiveness, and where crying is perfectly fine. He finds it so hard to accept this world without the quientesential 'maleness' or 'femininity' - even though he struggles to define exactly what it is that separates men from women.
Ai becomes so terribly isolated in his alienness, longing for something familiar. In this strange and unfamiliar world of wholeness, he clings to the eternal human "Us vs. Them" divide, refusing in his loneliness and fear to look beyond the usual, the prejudice. Until circumstances force him to get to know Estraven, and Ai finally sees in him "not a man's face and not a woman's, a human face. Estraven sees the promise that the union with Ekumen has for his world.

In his attempts to help Ai, he becomes viewed as a traitor view spoiler [and ultimately sacrifices his life hide spoiler ]. But it takes a long time and many trials and tribulations for Ai to recognize Estraven for what and who he is - just HUMAN, to move past the uncomfortable and the prejudice and discover simple human love.

Had I considered the principle of aerodynamics and approached the day with a less rigid focus on succeeding with the defined exercise, I might have had more fun and been more inclined to discover what I could do on that day and in the days to come.

He is just lost, confused, and isolated - a human, in the other words. Both and one. Expand text… Until one choice, one moment, destroys everything. Pick a handful of silly things and try to employ the principle of conflict while connecting the silly things.
