on righting

First step: Be prepared to write shitty

Second: Perhaps have a direction, maybe more a destination and explore every road that leads there and maybe some that don’t

Third: You cannot be editor and creator in the same moment. Create then cut. You cannot cut what you don’t have and you shouldn’t cut what’s just barely began to grow.

Fourth: Burn it. It frees your mind and you don’t need all of these thoughts piling up around you

Fifth: Fine, don’t burn it, but recognize that creativity is not the only component of good health and the beauty of coming alive. Caring for the others is caring for your art
