It’s the first Wednesday of the month again, time for a post for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group
I dream a dream. Right. We all do. Many writers dream of their books being adopted for Hollywood movies. Others want to appear on TV in some popular talk show (Oprah, anyone?) My dream is different. I want my novel(s) to become animated features. I want to see my characters drawn as beautiful as only an artist animator could make them. Studio Ghilbi would be my top choice, but I would settle for Disney.
Of course, I have to admit that my dreams never come true. That’s why I’m a writer. I dream a dream – and then I write it down, and it becomes a story. All my stories started from daydreams, only I never make myself a protagonist. I make my characters much more interesting than myself. I make them reach for their dreams, overcome all obstacles, and succeed against all odds.
Perhaps I should write a story about a writer who wants to see her stories as anime movies. She would succeed, I know. All my heroes do. Perhaps I should learn from her…
