"I'm a storyteller, it'll all work out in the end." - Shell Beige Bear
Have you seen this video? It's hysterical and bone-cutting to the truth, -listen between the lines for the obvious lessons. Can you relate to any of the Shell Beige Bear's dialogue? By the way, I don't know his name -but I think that one suits him, no? I'll admit it, naive thoughts may have crossed my mind, for a few split seconds, before being batted down with a large dose of reality. Let us not delude ourselves, writing is hard work, -it entails focus, time, commitment, research and reading, in fact - it requires an entire library of reading, so don't toss out that 'to be read pile' just yet.
Have I missed anything? Passion? But of course. You must crave it, blood lusting Vampire Novelists, Bodice Ripping Scribes, -step this way. And humour? Yes, please! Toss both of these ingredients into the mix, -an extra shake of a great sense of humour if you please, as that's what takes us through the long days and nights of tap-tap-tapping away in the darkest corners of our writing rooms.
