On Writing

I have what I think is a common affliction. I want to be liked. Doesn't everyone? But who am I trying to please?

 

Who are you trying to please? Be selfish. But be honest. Write with unflinching honesty.  Assume no one will read it. That is the only way to write.

Thank you for the reminder. For that dude, I'd link you.

the desire to relate is only dangerous when it makes a conjunction with the tyranny of the shoulds and cuts us off from our whole self.
