So over the years I’ve enjoyed, like many authors, drawing comparisons between the writing life and American Idol. AI condenses the roller coaster ride of being a creative artist all in one season.
[this is where I would have pasted a bunch of awesome pictures of Burnell, but they’re all copyrighted]
I love Burnell. I will miss both him as a personality and his singing. Not only because he’s adorable but he has the ability to make me cry when he sings.
As a writer we deal with rejection in may different forms big and small. Last night Burnell got the big R off the show. But as many of us writers know, a rejection whether big or small is still just one R. Just a single no. For Burnell it remains the same. He’s super talented, he’ll persevere and when he does we’ll hear him sing again.
So if you got that big R, my writer friends, and you’re bumming it. Keep on and keepin’ on. You have talent the world needs, continue to share it!!
