I think a great writer is one who can write about 'boring things' in an entertaining way. Like for instance, he or she can write an entire short story about a guy who's walking down the street twiddling his thumbs and make it seem like it's the greatest thing you've ever read. I can't do that. At all. I need a plot...a good one, a clever one, an exciting one. I need to make things happen in my story to mask all of my deficiencies as a writer. Anyways, what are your thoughts on this?
