The Voices and Your Shoulders
If you were to make a hierarchy of important things in a person’s life, where would you put writing a life-changing novel compared to watching the telly?
Hovering with wings on one shoulder, dressed in white and wearing a golden circlet, a figure whispers, “Be the change you want to make happen. Write the book for your fellow man.”
On the other shoulder, clad in red and black and emitting an alarming heat signature, a tiny demon says, “Don’t underestimate how tired you are this morning. Rest. And the television show isn’t going to watch itself.”
It’s easy to voice to your fans that writing a novel is important, even more important than Season 3,422. Yet, we dedicate ourselves to watching actors on a screen. Why?
