Write the kind of story you would like to read. People will give you all sorts of advice about writing, but if you are not writing something you like, no one else will like it either. [Meg Cabot]
A neighbour came by wanting to look at my art. It was nice, hearing her positive comments. I enJOYed that. And yet, I realised once again that I don’t make art or write for the responses or reactions, I DO them BEcause it feels like any other way of BEing Me would simply NOT work.
She also BEcame very “animated” about how my art MUST get out into the World. A “legacy” was one word she used. She has said this to me twice Now, and another friend has voiced similar thoughts.
I am NOT about writing to BE published or making art to have it in galleries or to sell it in shows. That’s all “work” for me. I am happy enough writing this and making a piece of digital art and sharing it with whoever reads or sees it.
I am writing a story about this Time in my Life. I want it to BE something I would like to read. And if you were interested, I’d hope you’d like to read it, too.
That’s enough for me.
I love you, Currie
