I took seven years of dance classes as a kid. I loved dancing when I was younger and still enjoy busting the occasional move. But I don't think I can dance. I'm a very flexible person. Back in the day I used to be able to go a foot and a half past the splits. But I have a weak center and I'm exceptional at falling out of turns.
I danced long enough and hard enough to know that it was something I could enjoy, but would never truly succeed at. I know just enough about dance to watch truly great dancers on tv and understand how difficult their movements are to perform.
Like dance, creative writing is also an art from. And like dance there is a large cannon of techniques one needs to internalize before becoming a great writer. I've always been a bad speller, and I'm sure there are other holes in my writing arsenal. During all my years in the dance studio as a kid, I always knew that deep down I couldn't dance. But I believe that I can write. I hope the thoughts and words floating around in my head and the stories I dream up are good enough to rise to the top of the competitive literary world that makes So You Think You Can Dance look easy.
