See, those words only count if they're your very best words when you write them. You have to believe in them. You have to be spilling your guts. No holding back. No "writing to learn." Writing, with everything you have, even if it's terrible.

If you don't commit, you don't improve. Like any lover, the muse can tell if you're faking it so that it doesn't hurt so much when you fail. And she will scorn you for it.


*adds to memories* Thank you for that. It's a hard lesson I don't seem to have learned yet -- I keep wanting to save the stories I'm in love with until I can do them justice. But I'll try again.
