Note to myself for the coming year:
What will you do to change the world in 2013? What will you do that is better, different, new, beautiful, challenging, thought-provoking? What will you sacrifice in the name of your art, your heart, your truth? What will you give back to a world that has given so much to you?
Be brave. Be bold. Take risks.
Be true to yourself.
Writers are forgetful,
but they remember everything.
They forget appointments and anniversaries,
but remember what you wore,
how you smelled,
on your first date…
They remember every story you’ve ever told them -
but forget what you’ve just said.
They don’t remember to water the plants
or take out the trash,
but they don’t forget how
to make you laugh.
Writers are forgetful
the important things.
