Start with a blank page.
Fill it with what excites you the most,
the thing that causes you the most pain,
the thing you are most afraid of being judged for,
and that you least want anyone to know about.
Don't worry that the wrong person will read it--
Don't worry that no one else has ever felt this way--
Don't think it's not good enough--
Don't think it's the best you can do--
it's not. Do it again.
dress it up in the most beautiful language you can imagine.
throw out two thirds of it.
Do it better.
Make yourself cry.
Make someone else cry.
Never be satisfied.
Never let yourself off the hook.
Never stop saying the thing that you're terrified to say.
don't waste my time, princess.
