So lately, I’ve been feeling lonely.
It’s just that, I read all these books and the authors have this grasp of the language and the rules and everything, and it’s so beautiful and perfect.. and then I try to do my stuff, and find myself stumbling to get around my flaws with know way of knowing what they know.
You know how you sometimes get rookie bands making friends with big bands on tour, and those bands show them the ropes and help them improve?
…I dont’ have any of that. I mean, I’d love to sit with a professional author and chat about the best way to do this and that and everything, but I don’t know anyone.
I wrote a post a few days back about Punk Ethic that I still haven’t put up, ‘cos it’s too ambitious and too much of a fantasy. But one of the plans there would stop that, ‘cos it would get authors to work togethor and support each other.
God knows there’s plenty of writers who could use support.
I just wish I had people to talk to and discuss this messy business with. Proper contacts and friends in the writing business.
