… or is it?

The truly great stories were sometimes written for money, sometimes under duress, sometimes through ecstasies of pain or pleasure.

The one thing they all have in common is the authors squinched their eyes shut and poured out their vision on the page.

Don’t drown your idea in premature critique.

Write your vision down like a child playing in a meadow- don’t worry about who might see it or how you might look.

Enjoy your story, tell it to yourself. Tell all of it and don’t let anyone dampen that voice.

If you follow this advice, you will have a story you wrote- which is more than anyone has when they worry about what readers may think.

And you will have fun doing it.

Tony Stark.
