The Show! By Dezy Walls
It is the mark of an artist to create something, which formerly existed only in his or her heart. David Mamet (Playwright and screenwriter)
I do want something from this.
I know I said I don’t care as long as The Show works but I want my sanity, that’s what I want. If I say The Show will be a sensation around the world and people say I’m mad then only The Show, doing as I say it will, gives me back my sanity. You see where I’m coming from?
I knew someone who would circle every capital ‘I’ in a piece to show the selfishness of the writer. Count them if you like. There are ten in that first paragraph. Do I care?
