Writing is work. Sometimes it's fun and flows and others days it's like pulling teeth. There is no way around that. I have to show up and write, especially on the days it seems hopeless and the narrative is crumbling around me. So beyond grit and determination, what really motivates me to tell the story of North Coast Video?
I'm almost 3/4 of the way done. That's a big motivator. Just finishing would be an accomplishment. Having the belief in myself that I *can* and *will* reach my goal is another motivator. Those are more are personal achievements though. What is really driving me to tell this story?
I appreciate Lou. I know Lou. He is a gem of a human being who has yet to be truly appreciated. Maybe that's a reason. Also, I want to entertain people. I enjoy capturing people's imaginations and transporting them to places they didn't know existed. I love looking at situations from unexpected angles and believing in the possibilities of dreams and the magic of every day life.
Lastly, I'm compelled to tell stories. I'm sure I could dig down on that and answer the why behind the what, but I'm not sure it really matters. I tell stories because I am a storyteller. I am a writer, a songwriter because I love creating new worlds. That is enough motivation for me. Stories need to be told.
