“You wanna fly, you got to give up the shit that weighs you down.”
What’s the shit that weighs you down? Your day job? Your honey? Fear? Well, as Nikki Giovanni says, writers write. There is no good reason that you do not write except you don’t love it enough. Writers write, period. Even if they aren’t published, even if the only one reading it is the pizza delivery man. Writers write. You want to fly jets? Get the shit out of your wings.
