Worth The Paper It's Written On

People feel my writing is raw and intense. It is. Yes. I am intense. I live balls out. I don't see a purpose of living life less than 100% engaged. And I don't see the purpose of writing non-friction. Writing pretty isn't worth more than 8 words. Those 8 embossed words are read and then they're discarded with the torn pastel-hued envelope and the birthday wrapping paper. You have to write balls out.

Look if you write well - jealous writers are going to hate you. If you write true - the shadowed are going to pull away from you. The only paper people really want to hold is double plied with lotion and leaves the least chafe. Do you really want your words mingled with that?

Here's hoping you have the courage.
