Above all else, I am a writer.
I once believed that in order for me to be satisfied with my writing, I needed attention. I needed to win contests, get good grades on essays, write a book. Well, I am a successful writer and I’ve never won a contest or even aced an essay paper.
It’s easy to impress others, near impossible to impress one’s self.
“The unreal is more powerful than the real. Because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. Because its only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles. Wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on. If you can change the way people think. The way they see themselves. The way they see the world. You can change the way people live their lives. That’s the only lasting thing you can create.”
— Chuck Palahniuk
