So why, might you ask, am I posting these videos?
I often forget how I came into writing and how long I really tried fighting wanting to do it, and I really believe if I remembered this more often, I wouldn't have the mini-breakdowns I often do about what I am writing. It is somewhat like the lesson in the Gita: we must love what we are doing, not love what we want to be good at. Want leads to suffering, but for all the writers out there that are going "but...but...but... I'M CREATIVE! SCREW YOU, MR. REQUARD!"
Yes, creativity is good, but creativity by itself won't make you good. If you want to be good at it, then you have to work at writing for the *sake* of writing. It may take longer for some than others, but if you work for the sake of it, you will go from being creative to being good, and from being good to one day being great.
It's about work.

Doing so gets me higher on Google searches, and I promise you it is the last bit of promotion I will do for this blog. Unless, you know.... book or something.
