Just trying to find a place in this world.

"So to you young writers out there, you teenage boys and girls who have this urge to write, this need to tell stories, to show the world how you see it, my advice is this: don’t pursue a career, don’t form a backup plan, don’t listen to anyone who says you should do anything other than write. You sit your ass in that chair, in front of the screen or the pad of paper or whatever gets your creative juices flowing, and you fucking write. Do nothing else. Think of nothing else. Write until your eyes bleed. Write until your knuckles crack. Write until you smell your own sweaty armpits. Write and don’t stop, and hopefully you can avoid the pitfalls that caught me."
