Read, read, read. Read everything — trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it.
Then write. If it’s good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out of the window.
— William Faulkner (via journaling-junkie)
Whatever you desire is already connected in some way to who you are and what you now have. Find that way, follow the connection.
