Stop writing as if you'll survive, be discovered, and understood.Don't pretend you have timeto not mean every word. Mean it. Every word. Or else make spreadsheets. Precious, clever lines won’t sound better later,or accrue in value, or change to gold from lead. Write like the dead. Syllable your last beat. You will not make it to the end of the page.You're already gone. What do you say, for your self?
