Ask yourself always: am I harmoniously put together, am I appropriately clad for the deed at hand, and am I free of non-essentials?

"The things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second."
― John Steinbeck, Cannery Row

Listen! I will be honest with you,
I do not offer the old smooth prizes, but offer rough new prizes,
These are the days that must happen to you

There are all kinds of truth … but behind all of them there is only one truth and that is that there’s no truth.

The main rule of writing is that if you do it with enough assurance and confidence, you’re allowed to do whatever you like. (That may be a rule for life as well as for writing. But it’s definitely true for writing.) So write your story as it needs to be written. Write it ­honestly, and tell it as best you can. I’m not sure that there are any other rules. Not ones that matter.

I just want to pour my soul out on someone and not have to worry about the mess I’ve made.

The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:

Capricorn: Your days might be a little tangled and a little strange this week, and that’s ok. You can let the world be a little complicated. You don’t have to make sense of each moment of each day. You don’t always have to know just where you’re going. You don’t have to decode every word, every sigh, every star up above you. This week, it’s enough that they’re there, it’s enough that you’re breathing, it’s enough that your world is rich and bright and blue and green. It’s enough to be kind. It’s enough to keep trying.

Today’s image was made specially for Madame Clairevoyant by Jen May.

"It’s enough to keep trying."
