Create Make Write
Letter sent on Oct 31, 2016

are you creating something real…?




i’ve never said that to anyone to their face, but i’ve thought about it often (yes i’m a bad person).

and i wonder how many people (how many of you?) would say that about me?

that’s why it’s my goal to always be in the middle of creating something — (mostly i do novels, essays and i’m putting some work on a journal — my books are here)

— and not just writing tips.

i also think it’s important to take the idea and have it exist, and not always dwelling on it (which is how i spent most of my 20s). it doesn’t have to be perfect.

bonus! i need to say this more to people when they’re doing work i appreciate…!

what do you think? i really want to know…
