There is room for you!
I signed up for the Master Class series so I could see Neil Gaiman and Annie Lebowitz classes. Surprisingly I found the most profound comment so far from Steve Martins introduction to his class on comedy. He said, “I hope to teach you that there is room for you out there” As a writer, amongst who knows how many writers, that is profound. I knew from the start that my books were not going to be for everyone. You don’t write a series of books from the Great Grandson of Lucifers point of view, his hatred of The Father, his disdain for “the cordwood” what he calls humans and expect it to appeal to a large audience. I guess that is the “room for me” I write what most people don’t want to read or feel uncomfortable reading. So whatever you do, remember, “There is room for you,” Steve Martin told us so.
