|Welcome to 2020|
——F. Scott Fitzgerald
I put a coma in this morning, took it out this afternoon.
Happiness is pursuing work that sustains the spirit.
Maybe the hardest thing in writing is simply to tell the truth about things as we see them.
The first draft of anything is shit.
Every secret of a writer’s soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written large in his works.
Not a wasted word. This has been a main point to my literary thinking all my life.
—Hunter S. Thompson
You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.
If anybody has a job and starts at 9, there's no reason why they can't get up at 4:30 or five and write for a couple of hours, and give their employers their second-best effort of the day—which is what I did.
When in doubt, make a fool of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth. So what the hell, leap.
Stay afraid, but do it anyway. What’s important is the action. Just do it and the confidence will follow.
