A Note of Support for All My Dreamers Getting Their Ideas Pooh-Poohed By Their Family, Their Friends, Their Spouses, and Their Neighbors (Fucking Neighbors, Am I Right?)

In: Finding Your Voice

In the year 2010, friends would call and say: “So, how’s your blooooooooggggggg?”

The tone was obvious: How’s your cute little imaginary friend that you think is going to save you from the real world that the rest of us have to suffer through?

The year 2011, I made $103,000 with that blog—a far cry from the $26 I started with, as I twisted and turned in the backseat of my car in the middle of a night in a Kmart parking lot. Then I went on to make a million. Then I went on to travel the world. Then I went on to build the publishing company of my dreams, and get represented by the literary agency of my dreams, and build the lifestyle of my dreams—none of which includes “suffering every damn day because some yahoo said that’s what the real world is and I should just suck it up.”

If you have an inkling to do something, do it.
If you have an idea about something, believe in it.
If you have even the slightest bit of curiosity around something, follow it.

And let them send their digs.

Because this world is made up of people who do, and people who are angry at themselves for not having the ingenuity nor the guts—thereby rendering their opinions automatically biased. Don’t do what I can’t; stay here with me, at my level, in my kiddie pool of tears.

But their incompetencies are not a valid reason for yours.

And with every dig you receive, take it as confirmation that sometimes, it’s better to be wrong—than right.

If You Don’t Seem Capable…You Aren’t

The way you hold your wine glass. How leisurely you pour your words. The conviction found in your fork, as you slowly and quite deliberately raise each bite to your mouth, as if rushes were for commoners and you hold the greatest secrets of the universe right there in between your forefinger and your thumb. […]

The Competition Doesn’t Have Sh*t On You

There’s never been a person who went to school for accounting and said: BUT WAIT, I CAN’T BECOME AN ACCOUNTANT BECAUSE OTHER PEOPLE ARE ALREADY DOINGGGGG THATTTTTTTTTTT. There are plenty of people out there doing exactly what you want to do—times eleventy thousand. “But there are already so many writers / designers / candlestick makers” […]

Look, We’ve All Got Our Faults. *Stomps Cigar*

Look, we’ve all got our faults. I, for one, have a wrinkly ass neck. I don’t know how it happened. I don’t know when it happened. But all the sudden there are lines as deep as the Panama Canal cutting across my trachea. Fortunately, all the resveratrol I’ve consumed over the years seems to have […]
