Dear Writer,

I don’t like you. I’ve never liked you. Unfortunately, I need you. I need you to tell my story. I need you to create my world. I need you to set me free.

I need your fingers typing on those keys, I need your mind riddling out the problems, and I need you to plough onward and upward no matter how hard it gets. Sweat, blood, and tears, I don’t care. You’ve got to fight this war, battle at a time, and win it. So I can be more.

It’s a slim hope, but it is the only one I have. In your head I am bound to mortality, frailty, and the limit of your meagre imagination. Out there – out there – I am subject to no one person. Out there I am bound to only black on white. Words on a page. Words that can lay seeds within a million minds. Out there I am a story capable of growing, moving, and stealing the dreams of anyone who learns of me…

I don’t like you. I’ve never liked you. I hate your lack of dedication, your flashes of crumbling inspiration, and your slow blotchy writing style. I despise my entrapment within your small trembling mind, so prone to distraction; and scowl down at those other ideas all vying for the attention you should be showing me.

I don’t like you. But I need you.

So, creator, I ask you yet again; publish me, set me free, and if you can somehow will your poor, misshapen, abilities into managing that then perhaps I will rethink my opinion of you.

But don’t hold your breath.

~ The Idea
I sat down to write, fiddled around with a few play on words, scribbled up some rough story drafts, and edited a short story. Then, unbidden, as I was about to pack up this... happened.

It may be poorly written, have the structure of a house built my malicious apes, and steeped in improper grammar. But, all the same, I don't think it is something I should ideally delete either. In fact, after getting over my original surprise at having written such a thing clearly addressed to myself, I find I quite like it.

In fact, I feel like it was just what I needed.

 Have you guys ever had a character argue with you in your head? Or is that just me and my weirdness?

It's not just you.

This... this is amazing. I feel like my own ideas and plot bunnies have spoken to me. They're devilish and infuriating little creatures, but I can't let them down...

Thank you for this. :)
