Here are some of the most important things I’ve learned:
Shut up and write
Let people off the hook
Do what you want to do and not what you don't want to do
Life presides in the individual moments, not the future or the past… the whisking wind, pattering rain and waves crashing repeatedly on the shore – as well as – the annoying co-worker, bumper-to-bumper traffic and long lines at the check out.
Life happens outside of our heads, not all up in the folds of our craniums like a deeply rooted wedgie.
We are nothing but this moment, and then a few more fleeting moments, and a few more after that.
Keep writing. It saves lives.
