ANTHROPOMORPHISM AT ITS FINEST
Creatures can give us insight. Show us characteristics that are an integral part of us but we tend not to acknowledge.
Introspection is good.
Cross species introspection is even better.

Writers...pick your animal.
New writers. A bit ridiculous. Goofy. Nitwits abound. You think you are special.Unique. Until you look up and see that you are surrounded by other nitwits just like yourself. You have two choices: Be like everyone else or try to make yourself stand out from the crowd.
What do you do?
Do you put your hands (paws) over your ears , a bag over your head go,La La La La?
When finally asked for a partial, do you run scared. Rework the first twenty pages until the agent dies a natural death. Or shoot yourself in the foot by forgetting to put your contact information in the cover letter?
Do you just dream of being a writer? Dream of writing a book? Dream of being published?
Or do you take writers' clinics? Aggressively focus and go after every last bit of knowledge working shoulder to shoulder with other writers.
ARE YOU RIDING THE DREAM?
OR IS THE DREAM RIDING YOU?
