The recipe is movement.

The greatest art calls you to action.

Note to self: More levity. Less worry. Stop being so meta and just make stuff, not making stuff about making stuff. That sucks.

Writing is chasing a question—an inquiry of the mind. Forward is better than every direction at once. It’s not really writing until you feel something; until you choke up at a thought, until you start fidgeting in your seat in excitement, until you feel the twinge of pain that happens when a thorn is pulled out of your side. Go back. Delete everything before you started fedgeting or crying of deflating like a balloon. Then, write some more.
Go write.

Lengthier writing is hard, because it requires one to commit to it. One must be alone. One can not write in a group. One must step away, shut off the world. What do I think? How do I feel? What is this itch? How can I scratch it? Why am I sad? Why did this make me happy? What’s it like being a father? Why did that project work? What did I learn?
