“Your job as a writer is to make sense out of life. Comic or tragic and anything in between, but you have to make sense out of life. You understand what that means? Making sense out of life? And this is why most people can’t do it. Because they can’t make sense out of life, let alone make sense out of life and then express it in writing.”
This resonates with me so much. When people ask why I write, I say, “Because good writing allows people to feel something deep inside they never knew existed.”
I want to make them feel something.
