“And what, you ask, does writing teach us? First and foremost,
it reminds us that we are alive
and that it is a gift and a privilege, not a right.”
“There is no real ending.
It’s just the place where you stop the story.”
“The mind that perceives the limitation is the limitation.”
“With enough butter, anything is good.”
People want to hear stories and poems. They want their emotions jangled and their minds bent, their existence questioned,
their reality suspended, their world taken apart
and put back together again. They need you to write.
