The first time I read that someone once said “When I want to read a novel, I write one,” I thought, “Arrogant much?” British Politician and writer, Benjamin Disraeli said that. And now I get it.
There comes a time when you can’t keep passing on the buck but must get things done. When you must stop complaining about not being taken seriously as writers. When you must stop complaining that the writers are not writing good enough stuff to be published. When you must stop complaining that there isn’t enough good stuff to read and of course, as is often the case with these things, when you must stop blaming the government for everything that is not working in your life. There comes a time when you realise that you could be doing more about “the poor reading culture” and the ‘literary desert” than just complain about it.
And so here we are. We are saying:
We see you and your story. We have experienced the magic of stories and storytelling and we would like to be a part of it. There are people dying to read your story and there are people dying to write it. We see you and we are dying to tell your story.
