Scouting. Representation. Strategy.
“There’s only one way to stand up straight, but there are forty ways to fall. That’s why heroes are characters who have no history. If they do have one, it’s always the same. The same impulses to make the right choices, no matter what country they come from, whether they’re rich or poor, whatever the color of their skin or their beliefs. They are carried towards their destiny along a straight road. If they had any doubts, they didn’t register. If they have regrets, they will tell no one. It’s impossible to tell heroes apart from each other.
Cowards, on the other hand, most certainly do have histories. You’ll come across them all through your life: they all have the rancid smell of mediocrity, though each one is created from a different recipe. You won’t find two the same, that’s the rule, and in this case too it can be applied to every country, to rich and poor, to black and white. Belief doesn’t come into it. That’s not something a coward can afford.
And that’s why I have a story to tell, because I, Ali Zayd, am not a hero.” Maurizio Maggi, Il caso Karmàl. (Published in Italy by Bollati Boringhieri. TV Movie Rights Available. Email Us for More Info.)

Writing stopped being fun when I discovered the difference between good writing and bad and, even more terrifying, the difference between it and true art. And after that, the whip came down.
