Pounding the keyboard.
 
If that were all it took, it would be easy.  Sort of like the infinite monkey theorem:
 
“The infinite monkey theorem states that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a given text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare.” Credits to:
 
Theoretically this may be true; however, we know that monkeys do not live forever and one would have to continually raise new monkeys to take the place of deceased monkeys and the amount of bananas and feces would be unimaginable, let alone keeping their attention focused on the goal of typing until the works of Shakespeare are produced.  I am not sure even changing this theorem to infinite human theorem would even work.  If you took an the human population and had them typing for the next, who knows how many years, with PC’s and the knowledge most possess of Shakespeare, I do not believe even they could produce the works of Shakespeare.  Some could do some of it from memory but the entire works is doubtful.
 
I am sure that even a simpler item, such as, those same monkeys typing out the infinite monkey theorem is not even possible.
 
Theories are not real life, you, Dear Writers, have one challenge.  That is to take those thoughts, ideas, and memories and put them into a reasonable facsimile of a story, novel and / or book.  That I believe is entirely possible.  The hardest part is getting you, Dear Writer, to keep at the action of typing / writing in order to accomplish the goal.  Books are a finite number of pages with a finite number of words and if you apply yourself each day that finite number becomes smaller and smaller of what is left to produce until you have it finished.
 
Keep in mind that I am still reviewing manuscripts, books, novels and will give each of them my FREE evaluation and suggestions and comments.  I, 100% guaranteed, that your work will not be copied, stolen or even repeated anywhere while it is under review or at any time in the future.
