"The ideas aren't that important. Really they aren't. Everyone's got an idea for a book, a movie, a story, a TV series."
I think this is something we all need to remember... You must act on these ideas, write the stories you think of, mold and perfect your art-- never stop creating! (That being said, I really don't think I'm going to get to the 50k for NaNo this year. Dammmmmmit.)
Also-- has anyone else noticed this? When you tell someone that you're a writer, 8 out of 10 times they will remark that they have the "perfect idea for a book," and that they can tell you "the idea and you can just write it for me." Um, no thank you-- I'll write my own books, thank you very much. You can't make this stuff up.
