In writing, story is my one ring to rule them all
And what better way to discuss writing than to quote Guns n Roses? Right? So,“Get in the ring motherfucker!”
Get in the Ring was, according to Wikipedia, directed at music critics who had things to say about the Gunners’ antics on stage. So I think it's quite apt to use in the context of writing.
As writers, we are our first and often worst critics, and we constantly question and criticise our own “antics” on -- and often off -- the page. This, our inner critic, can be a huge hindrance. At least, it certainly can be for me, and I am in no way unique.
OK. I lied, I am unique. I'm a beautiful fucking snowflake! But that's not the point.
