Some thoughts on writing

If you are a writer, you are actually making movies. Only, your audience is given nothing but close captioning on a blank screen. Your viewers see only words in front of them, yet those words will create images in their minds that surpass anything projected onto a screen. They even provide a soundtrack to amplify and enrich your story (yes, a well-told tale creates music in the soul). And not only are you the director, the cinematographer and the scenic artist, but disguised as you characters, you also play every part in your film, and you do it so well that no one recognizes you. It's quite a project and a challenge, isn't it? So take your sweet time and make it an Oscar-worthy masterpiece. :-)
