“I don’t know what I think until I write it down.”
— Joan Didion, author
I don’t write to garner likes.
I don’t write to make money.
I don’t write to change people.
I don’t write to change the world.
I write to make sense of my experiences.
I write to ease my own suffering.
I write to give advice to my younger self.
I write for an audience of one: me.
When I’m not procrastinating on my daily writing goals, I steal my friends and family’s dogs and hang out whole foods parking lots.
