We all have something inside us that we want to tell people about.
Some idea of feeling that we feel others should know.
We want to commune over this idea.
Feel like we’re not the only ones.
So we write.
But the connection is secondary.
It’s not guaranteed.
Most things you write might not capture that feeling.
You may find out that the genius idea you felt you had is really disorganized and incomplete.
But through writing and living, you can grow that idea.
You can discover subtler and deeper parts of life.
It’s not easy but the sense of discovery, growth and wonder are it’s own reward.
