Good Isn't Good Enough
I see many ambitious, well-intentioned literary projects. One pops up almost every day. Some of them are even fairly good. But being good isn't good enough in this hyper-crowded age. You have to be more than good. Way more. Explosive. Spectacular. Nuclear. You have to be more dynamic than the competition by a factor of ten. So good, so explosive and energetic that you're scary. If you're not scaring yourself by what you're doing, you're not good enough; your fate will be to be just one more of many many more; a faceless dot in a overcrowded literary scene..
