Why You Should Be A Writer

You still there?

You know that post I wrote before? Well, it's hard to explain, but one way or another it found its way to my blog.

In The Silver Chair (one of C. S. Lewis' Narnia books), a person has a moment like that. He says that, when he's tied to the Silver Chair, he'll say all sorts of things that they (the protagonists) shouldn't believe.

Well, it's sort of like that. I'm tied in a metaphorical Silver Chair right now, and I must have tied the bonds rather tight. But I assure you, I'm in my right mind. And writing's not all that bad. It's actually pretty amazing.

You see, I was spouting those things off BEFORE I tied myself to the chair. And now I'm in my right mind.

So will you let me go now? Please?

Maybe?

I'll write a counter post, I promise. Just to let you know that I'm "sane" again.

So...uh, I'm still tied here. Hold on, wait! Where are you going? I'm tied to a—chair!

Hello?

*wipes brow* So I am not utterly bad for being a writer. ;-) I love your allusion to my favorite Narnia book of all time! :-D

No, Jake. We're going to leave you tied to your chair until the end of time. Mwahahah. *bland face* Wait. Isn't that a good thing...?

I eagerly await your counter post.

Ah, now you speak sense. *unties Jake*

We all know what happens when Jill & Eustace untied the prince....

Mmm, I agree to all the comments above.

@The Director, yes we do. He became a monster...oh wait. That was a different book...

Off topic, have you ever read The Giver by Lois Lowry, Jake? I'm making my way though it. It's a very interesting ready.

As long as you promise to stay sane, I'll untie you. ; )

Can't wait!

Director, next time, take away the Pen of Doom, then untie him. Safety measures y'know. ;)
