• PRESS POINTS •
I used to make exhaustive lists of stories I could write
…and then not write them. List upon list upon list – scribbled illegibly on grease-slicked napkins, scraps of paper torn from magazines, journals, my hand. What’s worse, I used to talk endlessly about them at the least provocation.
I defended my list courageously. And stalled expertly. And dreamed endlessly. Anything to keep me from doing the one thing that gets a story, or article, or novel, or screenplay written…WRITING IT.
Stop talking about your great story ideas. Stop making lists. They only become intimidating after a very short while. Stop making excuses. Nobody cares.
Start writing. Start realizing. Here. Today. NOW.
-- Ray Bradbury
