It requires immeasurable patience, boundless energy and unfailing endurance, immense determination, reach beyond grasp, and inexhaustible perseverence. And that’s all before breakfast on a lazy Sunday morn.
Mostly, though, writing demands passion. Passion for the written word and the subject matter. And imagination, the stuff that dreams are made of. And drink, lots of it, to ease the pain and juice the flow. And drugs, of course, to break those mortal chains and open the doors of perception.
And then there’s silence. That sweet elusive music that is both stillborn and stillness and full of the absence and emptiness a writer needs to fill with tears of sleeveworn emotion. The kind of silence that hangs in the air moments after confessing your lust for obscure button stacks or the shameful desire to build a website without using a parallax effect.
If you’re a developer, then you’ll know what I mean. Developers are the left-brain poets of a backbeat generation. And if you’re a writer, you’ll also know what I mean.
And right now you’ll be sitting in your garret, nursing your hangover and saying to yourself, “That guy’s really been there, he understands the depths of despair we tortured poets plumb in the name of webdesign, the hardships we endure to escape our tormented dreams before the sun even sets, the selfless sacrifices we make to bring enlightenment — and just one more slider — to the somnambulant weavers who stumble blind and senseless through the murk of design inspiration.”
And so it goes on. The pathos never really stops.
Which is why RapidWeaver Central are now searching for writers who can write more sense than anything you’ve read up to this point. Who can actually get to the point without feeling the need to pen a fucking masterpiece.
So long story short: are you that kind of writer: pragmatic, logical, perceptive, and passionate about RapidWeaver and the addons that you use regularly to achieve your ends? Would you like to review RapidWeaver addons — check out Rob Beattie’s reviews as an example — or write articles about anything RapidWeaver related?
If so, get in touch — and we’ll bestow upon you the poetic injustice you subconsciously seek: neither fame nor fortune, nor appreciation of the nobler purpose of your abject meanderings, but a captive RapidWeaver audience grateful for your every insight and recommendation.
