To all the writers out there:
It’s not real unless it’s obsessive.
We all dream. But, you don’t deserve it unless every minute of your life is somehow a journey towards it.
We all love. But you don’t belong together unless you share a passion that drives you insane.
You can write pretty words, think easy thoughts. It might even please the crowd. But you’re not really writing unless every word you write is a window to your soul. The truth is ugly. It doesn’t rhyme. Sometimes it doesn’t even make sense. But the moment you stop caring what others think, you will discover yourself. Maybe they’ll like it, maybe they won’t. At least, it will be real.
So darling, stay obsessed. Make every choice like there’s no consequence. Live every fucking moment like you’re about to breathe your last breath.
