But the ultimate lesson is just sit down and write. That’s all.
— Wole Soyinka
Don’t tell me not to cry
To calm it down
Not to be so extreme
To be reasonable.
I am an emotional creature.
It’s how the earth got made.
How the wind continues to pollinate.
You don’t tell the Atlantic Ocean to behave.
— Eve Ensler “I am an Emotional Creature” (via dougsfirs)
