sometimes when I read the responses to your asks they remind me of Lemony Snicket and the way he writes. have you ever considered a team up with him because I think the results would be amazing.

Authors Daniel Handler (aka Lemony Snicket) and Neil Gaiman come together for a unique, totally unpredictable, and no-holds-barred evening of mayhem, in which the longtime friends and occasional collaborators ask each other questions about literature—or swordfight to the death.

We are keeping our options open.

Don’t wait. Writers are the only artists I know of who expect to get somewhere by waiting. Everyone knows you have to dance to be a dancer, you have to sing to be a singer, you have to act to be an actor, but far too many people seem to believe that you. don’t have to write to be a writer. So, instead of writing, they wait. Isaac Asimov said it beautifully in just six words: “It’s the writing that teaches you.” Writing is what teaches you. Writing is what leads to “inspiration.” Writing is what generates ideas. Nothing else-and nothing less. Don’t meditate, don’t do yoga, don’t do drugs. Just write.
