I can’t seem to get it right either. Just keep experimenting. Writing’s supposed to be fun, you know? I think I’ve lost that somewhere along the way. Hopefully for my next foray into penmanship I’ll be able to create a fun universe I actively enjoy visiting, because at the moment, it’s a drag.
Probably people being nice and reblogging my stuff, I guess. It’s just luck, honestly.
I love it when people make art inspired by my writing!
Messages like this are nicer than I deserve. Very sweet though.

R.I.P Philip Seymour Hoffman. An incredibly talented actor. Synecdoche, New York is one of the greatest films of all time, if not the greatest.
Right now? Teju Cole and George Eliot.
