For quite some time I have been on what is perceived to be a mission: To reclaim storytelling, to return it to its noble purpose, to re-inherit it with a functional and worthy pedigree, to renew it as it was intended to be.
I admit that this undertaking, this “mission” may be a fool’s errand because of the damage done to storytelling. When people learn that I am a Writer and that I tell stories, more often than not the response is a polite one, followed by a quiet question: What is it you do for a living?
Writing and storytelling go hand-in-hand. But they also face the same problems wrought by misplaced prejudice, deliberate perversity and bastardizing.
Stay tuned and see how I address these issues.
