Egg of the Id…

*

A story should be taken to heart

And incubated

Brooded upon

Mulled over

Savoured.

The subject of a good story is always you.

Every one of you.

Not you as you are.

You as you could be.

And, perhaps, really ought to be.

*

Good stories are a part of that science of the soul

which insists that your world cannot be changed

without first changing yourself.

*

Even the most seemingly insignificant story

can pick up your soul and shake it like a leaf in the wind.

Where then is the world

you thought you lived in?

*

Only after the incubation

The brooding and mulling

The savouring…

Should the story be left

To fly free

In the world.

– Count Jack Black
