To be subtle. To be true. To be original. To be on. • To sing without moving your lips. • To explore the conventions of a thousand genres and befriend a thousand tribes. • To set your love free. • To get better at doing hard things.
Because greeting cards with someone else's sentiments are lame. • To marinate your brain in wow. • To create the next Yoda. • Write. Revise. There is no other way.
(And why do you have to write today? Surely you have your reasons . . . )
