… is another writer with a story, another artist with a vision, another painter with a dream, another musician, another filmmaker, etc., etc., etc.

We’ve got not enough time for the too many of them there already are. If you’ve made something, the chances of anyone outside your immediate circle of friends and family ever giving a damn about what you’ve poured your heart and soul into are slim.

The main reason for this is that your work probably sucks. It’s just not good enough. Some people think that great stuff goes unnoticed because there’s just too much noise, too much clutter, too many other ways for people to divert themselves.

But I don’t believe that. Because I’m playing the long game, you see. I believe that in any given week, or month, or year, or decade, or lifetime, for that matter, great artistry IS undiscovered, ignored, passed over. But, ultimately, if what you’ve done says something that touches or fascinates other people about what it’s like to be alive on this planet, at this time, then your work will be found … it will be heard, watched, read, discussed.

I know it may sound ludicrous, but that’s why I wrote BALLARD motor court. I believe that this story has been to the crossroads and contains truth about the intersection of art and reality.

Of course, it could just suck!
