Look, let me explain something to You.  I’m not Mr. Lebowski.  You’re Mr. Lebowski.  I’m the dude.  So that’s what you call me.  That or His Dudeness… Duder… or El Duderino if, you know, you’re not into the who brevity thing.

The Dude

Being a writer isn’t well… just about being a writer.  Its having the ability to tell a story but not just telling a story.  Its about having a story to tell but not just having a story to tell.  Its about having the ability to make up story after story after story.  Its having the ability to consciously fall ass backwards into situations that any sane person would turn and run from.  Its about following a path without knowing what lies on the other side no matter how stupid crazy, scary or downright idiotic it may be.  Its about throwing yourself head first into situations unknown somehow surviving and pulling a story out of your ass at the end of it all.

So here is my recipe for becoming a writer.  Throw yourself in head deep, fail miserably, shake… rinse… repeat….

And even if he’s a lazy man – and the Dude was most certainly that. Quite possibly the laziest in all of Los Angeles County, which would place him high in the runnin’ for laziest worldwide.   ~The Big Lebowski
