Looking at ghosts and empties

“Writers have all sorts of ways we sabotage ourselves. One is to imagine the reactions to our work ahead of time. Especially the reactions of those we hoped to impress when we were young. Let those ghosts fade away. Do the work for yourself. This way, you’ll actually do it.”

I made myself a promise the other day, that anytime a Trump tweet filled me with rage, I’d tweet something I’d learned about being a creative, instead of rage tweeting back.

And I’ll also put em here, with some additional thoughts, as I can.
