Until I read that the famous Roald Dahl was always jotting down tidbits that might grow into a story, I thought I was unorganized and probably would never be able to put my story together. I am pleased that it is a writing style used by one of the most imaginative writers.
As Shannon Maughan writes in Publishers Weekly to honor this prolific author, “Legendary author Roald Dahl (1916–1990) was, very literally, an idea man. He was forever jotting notes—kernels and tidbits that might one day grow into a story.”
Although my story may not become a movie, I will put the pieces together and get it published. I will write, I will produce, and I will get it out there to my audience and see what happens.
