“Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.” ― Louis L’Amour
You’d never guess it by looking at me, but, I’m a closet Louis L’Amour fan. I was one of those little boys that wore cowboy boots everywhere. In shorts, in my underwear, just everywhere. Our library had booksales in the basement. Fill a bag for a buck. You’d get one of those brown paper grocery bags and go to town. There’d be piles of random books donated from estates, movers and the like. One time there was 4 rum boxes full of these cowboy books. I didn’t know who Louis was then. I bought a bag full and soon found out.
I’m often told I should write a book or movie. I’m a natural raconteur. Stories flow, often funny, often awkward. I’ve got a couple concepts. But, as Louis says, I need to put pen to paper. Some research will need to be done, so I get the basics of storytelling correct. If I do it, may as well go in with a clue. Maybe, do one of those “Novel in 30 Days” programs. Doing this blog will be a step in the “write” direction. Better get on it.
Time to let those stories shine.
