Don’t Skip the Bad Parts

John Dyer, an acquaintance from my time at DTS, just posted a conversation with his son on Facebook. It’s worth noting:

B: Daddy are there any movies without bad parts in them?
J: What do you mean by ‘bad parts’?
B: I don’t know.
J: Like when Lightening McQueen gets lost and his car breaks? Or when Scoop and Muck break something that Bob the builder has to fix?
B: Yes, yes. Are there any stories without them?
J: No.
B: Why?
J: Those ‘bad parts’ are what makes a regular story into a good story, and they are what can turn a good guy into a great guy.
