I hate to have to say this Bryan, but you're full of shit. Of all the writers I know, none turns out more amazing creative writing on a more regular basis than you.

Okay, I get it. You're human. You probably struggle from time to time, just like the rest of us, but it sure doesn't seem like it from where I'm sitting.

I mean I've read a short story/FF piece of yours at least every other week since I met you. You would think eventually one would suck. Or at least be not completely incredible.

Nope.

Great cartoon though. You gotta love the Snoop.

Yes.

It looks like my dog has taken a stab at writing my wip. And she really like adverbs. *sigh*

What's the second sentence after that great fist one? I need to find that out.

It was a dark and stormy night...and then what happens? I'm intrigued. Did the wind blow? Did the rain fall? All kinds of possibilities there. :D

HAHA! You'd think with all the effort it took to get the typewriter up there, he'd at least write something original...

Originality IS hard work. They say human beings are unique in themselves. They forgot about writers in that reference. We're just one genre away from on another (winks). (Hugs)Indigo

Oh yes. Me knows!!!

Matt,

Well, I think I'm good once I get into something... but starting? Finding time? Squeezing in enough words to actually get something accomplished in this lifetime? I think we all struggle with that. And beginnings! The bane of existence, are those beginnings.

Snoopy had a huge impact on me as a writer growing up.

Matthew MacNish said...

Okay, I'll give you that, but you sure make it look easy, my friend.

M.A.Leslie said...

It's a better start then "Call me Ishmael." Just my opinion don't shoot.

D.G. Hudson said...

What you have posted, Bryan is excellent quality.

I agree, with your sentiment: Them words, they are hard to find.

Snoopy as Joe Cool was my favorite. Some cartoons say it all for us.

Love Snoopy, ever since I was a wee lassie (sorry, doing Irish research). I agree with Matt that you sure make it look easy, but the thing I love about writing as a profession? Every writer - every damn one of them - struggles. And it's the same struggle over story and craft. Sure Westerfeld's struggles make me look like a rank amateur, but here's the thing: he still struggles. I love it when veteran authors share that with the rest of us.
