Hello Fellow Writers,
Story Genius is covered! It feels great to have it totally finished, after two years of really hard work – and I’m not just talking about me. So many talented people helped -- they read drafts, gave me insightful, spot-on feedback, kept me on track, and didn’t let me give up (and boy, there were times when that’s exactly what I wanted to do). Writing is hard, but it’s so worth it. And I present to you, the official cover:
What I want to do now is salute all of you, writers who keep at it, even when you want nothing more than to give up, forget about it, get a snack, binge-watch every episode of Father Knows Best (or maybe that one is just me) – DO ANYTHING – except write. Instead, you write (okay, maybe after a little snack and just one episode). You stick at it. Even though who knows how it will turn out. Who knows if you’ll ever have an audience. Who knows if you might be making a big fool of yourself in front of . . . well, at the moment, just the cat. But still.
Here’s my theory: We’re fools whether or not we dance, so we might as well dance.
With words. On the page. Let the music begin!
