Christmas Special - A Christmas Thought Balloons Message - Ben Rosenthal

1.  Ben Rosenthal is looking directly at the reader, addressing them.

Hey there, I'm Ben.  The puppet dictator here at Thought Balloons.

2.  Ben is walking past a collection of items which represent different things to people around Christmas times - religious scenes, presents, a family gathering.

Of course, Christmas means different things to different people.  Coming together with friends and family being one of the most important.

3.  Extreme close up of Ben's face.   He is serious.

Unless you're a writer.

4.  Ben is sitting at his desk hunched over, almost as if he is in pain while he writes.

So spare a though this holiday season for the writers.

We don't choose to writer whenever we can.

We have to.

  1. Happy Christmas, Ben. As a special present to you, I'm not going to point out the typo in the penultimate line. Congrats on keeping at it... I think my writing days are behind me, for the time being at least. Sometimes life makes those choices for you.
