Okay. Here it is. My big comment on Mr. Letterman.

Posted in blog post on October 2nd, 2009 by Merrill Markoe

It is this: As you can imagine this is a very emotional moment for me because Dave promised me many times that I was the only woman he would ever cheat on.

And now that I have your attention, for your additional enjoyment, here’s this. It is my re-interpretation of Quick Draw McGraw as a German expressionist film. Or, if you’re more in the mood for something about how your dog might react if you  had a heart attack, here’s this. my first and only French film.

    Dear Erin:
    Okay—Then consider yourself encouraged.
    That said, writing is a tough way to earn a living. Its not easy no matter what form of writing you pick. for millions of reasons. Ultimately the only way to remain encouraged is to encourage yourself, I’m afraid. You have to really want to write to make any head way. Not only is it the least fun of the various art forms (because it is inconveniently positioned on the wrong side of the brain and falls in with math and homework instead of music and art) but it can be a mine field of politics and criticism and marketplace ephemera. It is very easy for almost every writer to get discouraged. And I hear that not just from women who have been working as writers for many years but men too. Its a difficult field (except if you’re Stephanie Meyer.)
    Still, if you have stuff you want to say and you think you’re good at it….WRITE! Because even worse than the problems that come from writing are the ones that come from wanting to write and never getting around to it.( like ulcers, migraines, rashes, asthma) So do it. One step and at a time. And see where it leads you. Meanwhile, as you move forward remember this one crucial thing: no matter what you are thinking of writing, no matter the form or the content, don’t forget to add vampires.
    Good luck.
