My thoughts from a few lines in an interview with David Mitchell.

The Writer’s Paradox, or Sacrifice?
Mark wrote:...

Perhaps this is where a writer’s real talent lies. Understanding the rules of grammar and punctuation are technicalities that can be learned. Narrative structure and character development are more difficult, but if one wants to follow some preset archetypes, there are still possibilities for publication. It’s the ability to put all of these words and ideas together in a way that makes the reader believe they could be real that sets apart the truly successful writers from those wallowing in the slush piles. As a reader, we make a deal with the author that we are going to suspend our disbelief in order to live in their world for a short time, but only if they put up a suitably persuasive front. As an author, it doesn’t matter how entertaining or brilliant your story is if the reader just can’t believe that it might be possible.

The only post my brain was capable of after sending off three short story submissions this weekend. Also, a brief mention of what is probably the greatest hobo movie ever.
