Writing is an Extreme Privilege

 

Writing is an extreme privilege but it’s also a gift. It’s a gift to yourself and it’s a gift of giving a story to someone.

Amy Tan

 

It’s political correctness gone mad!

 

Yeah, it’s all political correctness gone mad!
Let’s not piss anyone off by pissing everyone off. That’ll work.

Fiction is the truth…

— Stephen King - "On Writing"
 

Fiction is the truth inside the lie.

Writing isn’t about making money, getting famous, getting dates, getting laid, or making friends. In the end, it’s about enriching the lives of those who will read your work, and enriching your own life, as well. It’s about getting up, getting well, and getting over. Getting happy, okay? Getting happy.

“In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity”.

I like this thought of the Chinese man with the name of Sun Tzu. It is true, in fact, that I am liking more and more of his thoughts the longer I am in command of the Revolutionary Forces of Freedom.

It was in the midst of chaos that I took the opportunity to seize command from Bishaar. When we battled with the UN Peacekeepers he allowed himself to be captured. He was stupid to have thought he needed no-one close to him, no second-in-command, to protect his legacy in the event of his demise.

Do not believe that I was alone in my effort to answer the call of opportunity. Maxama had similar ideas.

Oh, thank God it’s you… for a moment there I wasn’t certain. I thought you could be one of them. Stupid, I know, but I am scared. I suppose I should know better. They wouldn’t knock, they’d simply break the door down.

Well don’t just stand there. Get inside quickly before they spot us. The streets have been busy with their collection squads all day.
