1. I am a writer. Of the things of which I'm certain, this is the most essential. Proven because despite a lack of validation, of justification - or publication - I keep doing it.
ii. It might not get better, but it certainly gets easier. A paraphrasing of some words of wisdom, pedagogically received.
c. When it doubt, take it out. True of so many editorial, and other more illicit, quandaries.
Ever mine, ever thine, ever ours...
PS: Dear "Lost" Writers, if after all is said and done, it's all in the Fat Guy's head, imma bring the mother*@ing ruckus.
