Re: [IAG-members] Re: Writing is hard.
- Do you remember the Twilight Zone episode with Burgess Meredith? He was a book lover and wanted to read as much as he could. But his shrewish wife would stop him from reading and threaten to destroy his books.Then one day some cataclysmic event took place and wiped out all humanity except him. He found the Library of Congress and thought he was in Heaven. But his glasses fell off his face and clattered down the steps. That was in the days of glass lenses and there were no others to replace the broken ones.VivaYvonne LaRose

Subject: [IAG-members] Re: Writing is hard.
Reading what everyone is writing makes me want more time to read and less time to write but I know the writing will win that competition.So many interesting books out there and never enough time in a lifetime to read them all or even a small fraction of them.
- Man, I read the passage I spent all last evening writing and it "looked like a plate of hurl," in the immortal words of Wayne Campbell. I had thought it was so neat. Implausible, clunky, stodgy, inconclusive, not even funny. So into the sausage grinder it goes, yet again, to come out as fresh sausage. Or perhaps fresh hurl.
But not now. Tomorrow's the one day a week I actually work, and I gotta get up at four. So I'm leaving it be for now. Now I will re-read the Hawaii scene, one I know came out right, and pack it in. Rest easy, authors and authorettes.
