You ever get the blues thinking you waited too long to do what you love? I was in that funk recently, but then I was like, "Fuck it! Just do what you love." Age is just an attitude, and these social norms are bullshit. Who cares what anyone else is doing? Who cares who's made it?
Plus, I was rereading The Harvest from start to finish, and I really like that piece. I know that means I will have to give more distance to revise, but Fuck It! I think I am objective enough that I can tell when I write utter garbage, and this draft is far from it.
Oh, and I found someone else willing to read it, my good friend and compadre Saed Rihani. He won't have time until February, but I hope to finish the novel by December 2017.
Fuck it! Do what you love. #Resist
