I don’t teach writing. I teach patience. Toughness. Stubbornness. The willingness to fail. I teach the life.

People who have no talent don’t have any doubt.

Getting a desktop computer for my birthday and I’m so excited because it means that I will actually have a space to myself for my writing (rather than at work which is what I’ve been doing). I was so ecstatic when I found out that I started out cleaning off my desk

I have absolutely no motivation to write SOMEONE HELP ME
