“Nobody will stop you from creating. Do it tonight. Do it tomorrow. That is the way to make your soul grow - whether there is a market for it or not! The kick of creation is the act of creating, not anything that happens afterward. I would tell all of you watching this screen: Before you go to bed, write a four line poem. Make it as good as you can. Don’t show it to anybody. Put it where nobody will find it. And you will discover that you have your reward.”

Recently, I’ve been writing quite a bit. A few weeks ago, I managed to find some time for being creative again, and since then, it’s continued pretty consistently. I’ve been writing lots of poems and even a couple short stories, and I’ve been reading some pretty damn good books as well.
Now that we’re 20ish years old, sleepovers are more out of necessity.
Last night, Brad, Mackenzie, Mitch, and I slept in our friends living room because we don’t have a place to stay.
But there were still just as many silence ending farts and giggles as when we were 10 years old.
