I haven’t yet quit my day job to pursue the written word, but I’m starting small: twelve short stories this year. I once did twenty-five; this should be no Herculean task. I’ve gotten three others to commit to this as well, and three more still to pitch in on occasion. hopefully, more than fifty horrible story children will be born in your honor this year. this is all because of Zen and you know it. looking forward to that drink I owe you in whatever circle of Heavell is reserved for writers and their unforgivable creations.
Is there no rest? No, only journeying to be yourself.

bout to start another one of those short story year-round projects awwww yeahhhhh
so I’m reading Zen in the Art of Writing for the third time. for inspiration :’D
bro i read zen in the art of writing when i was still in high school and it changed my fucking life
I should have clarified. “““AGAIN”““ did you read Zen in the Art of Writing AGAIN because of COURSE you read it in high school
I didn’t get to it until college, which I sincerely regret but am also thankful for because I wouldn’t have listened to him in high school
