No doubt about it, you've probably heard more than one author wannabe boast about the fabulous story, sure to be a classic like "Harry Potter," they're going to write someday. Haven't started to work on it yet, but will, for sure, any day now. Really?
When this happens to me, I resist the temptation to whack my wand alongside the head of the clueless writer. and offer, instead, a reality check. "Dear one, an unwritten story never will be published if it only takes up parking space in your brain. It's illegal, in most states, for publishers to chain saw their way into your skull to extract the next best seller." Whew! Isn't that good news?"
You, dear writer have written, or are writing your story, bringing it out and into the world. You practice the BIC (butt in chair) ritual that ultimately produces a completed manuscript. In the process you've also avoided the potential of a midnight lobotomy. WOOHOO for you!
