Today one of my roommates & I had a great conversation with one of our neighbors. He is taking improve classes at Second City. (which I just learned is a comedy school/center) He is a writer of funny things. It was extremely interesting to hear him talk about the writers who succeed are not necessarily the “great” ones. The successful are the persistent ones. Always writing & improving. Always sending in articles. Typically the “great” writers tend to be a bit lazy therefor, they may write great masterpieces, yet never submit them anywhere.
As far as reading goes, I have a ton of it. I intended to read at the coffee shop, but instead we had the above mentioned conversation. As a result, I must go read now. Have a great day!
