To all my writing friends --A call to write, write, write!
It is easy to be overwhelmed by the numbers of books being published every year. Especially if you are following agents and publishers. As a new, unpublished author it would be easy to allow ourselves to sink into the throws of what’s the point, the world doesn’t need any more stories, let alone mine.
My courage has been renewed this week listening to commercials for upcoming movies and TV shows. Did you catch the theme? Robin Hood, The A-Team, Hawaii 5.0.
People are desperate for good stories! It warms the writing soul, doesn’t it? It reminds me of a great quote from The American President. It speaking about leadership, but I think it works for good stories, too.
They're so thirsty for it they'll crawl through the desert toward a mirage, and when they discover there's no water, they'll drink the sand.
So let’s get cracking and fill the world with good stories of hope for our lost and dying world.
Of course, if they bring back The Rockford Files and or Magnum, I’ll be there.
(Writing this has allowed me to escape for a few moments from writing my story!)
