Thanks for the kind word. I enjoy exploring visual themes that might grab a reader. Now, if I could only write with the same confidence....

John: Couple shots of Bushmills, deep breath. Start typing. Mention guns, fast cars, loose women, lots of sex. On the last page, throw in a character not previously mentioned. That person's uncle's cousin did it.

If you want to write, WRITE. Make notes, write short "seed idea" pieces, & keep everything. As you read back over things you've written, you'll see changes you want to make. The exercise of writing & self-editing is what makes you good & gives you the confidence you're looking for.
Convincing a useless (for any other purposes than as a gatekeeper & to take all of the proceeds you would have otherwise earned from your first 2 or 3 published works) dipstick "agent" to vigorously represent your work is another thing entirely...
...then check out what Thomas Sowell had to say about editors.

Thanks for the encouraging word. It's ironic that the very things I say about how one can start developing drawing skills - don't judge, think small at first, draw often-are the suggestions I balk at when it comes to narrative writing.
