Is everyone at the FORT a writer? Otherwise known as: Secret ambitions
Iíve noticed a highly unusual amount of witty, engaging, clever, and even acerbic posts on this website, more so than other websites, and have also noticed a general trend in the writing staff/recappers at the FORT, i.e. anyone can step in and their words smack of brilliance, if not outright comedy gold. I'm so impressed all the time. I donít always post comments, but I always think so. (Truth be told, I enjoy some of the recaps far more than the show thatís being recapped. Ditto for all the FORT posters who comment on the various shows/topics.)
How many of you out there have ambitions to be writers, besides those already bravely out of the writerís closet?
Iím just honestly curious to see how many of you out there write ďon the sideĒ (or in secret), or pretend not to want to write or just never talk about it, but secretly have the burning desire hidden deep in your bosom. The recappers have varying occupations having almost nothing to do with writing, and yet, theyíre utterly publishable.
And itís not just the recappers. Iíd say that the average FORT poster is the same: i.e. highly astute, witty, with well-formed ideas, yada yada. I frequently just enjoy reading the posts.
So, how many of you out there have the secret desire to write (or do so secretly)?
I'm just wondering, is it the FORT, or are there just that many brilliant writers in the world? Does like attract like, or did I just stumble into an acccidental gaggle of witty people suddenly?
This could also be a thread about your secret ambitions. Besides all you closeted writers, what other secret ambitions and/or sidelined occupations are the FORT peeps harboring? Please share them with us.
