“You are lucky to be one of those people who wishes to build sand castles with words, who is willing to create a place where your imagination can wander.”
—Anne Lamott, Bird By Bird

The Last Word
From the book ‘Bird By Bird‘
“If something inside of you is real, we will probably find it interesting, and it will probably be universal. So you must risk placing real emotion at the center of your work. Write straight into the emotional center of things. Write toward vulnerability. Risk being unliked. Tell the truth as you understand it. If you’re a writer you have a moral obligation to do this. And it is a revolutionary act—truth is always subversive.”
―Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird
