Double-sided tape is the best invention ever. Seriously.
And I think you should aspire to the awesomeness of double-sided tape. Here's how:
1. You're story should be smooth with no creases and wrinkles. It should look and seem flawless. (Even if every writer out there knows it took a crapload of effort. It shouldn't look or feel that way.)
2. You want your story to stick with people. You want them to feel it long after they've put it down.
3. You shouldn't waste any words, sentences or scenes. Everything should be multi functional and serving double duty to create layers and impressions and inspire feelings.
How do you achieve all these? With some natural talent, a desire to improve your craft, critique partners who will point out the flaws and a whole lot of revision.
But, if you work hard enough, you can be as awesome as double sided tape!
I apologize for the lameness of this post. School is currently frying my brains. I don't have enough cells left to create something brilliant.
What do you want to be like? How was your weekend?
