One of my favorite quotes is by Audre Lorde-which has anchored me as gospel:
Your goal is not, should not be, to emulate–to imitate anyone else when you write. Your goal when you write is to be you–completely. Whatever your writing goals–they are yours. Meaning you have complete control to complete them. And you have the talent to fulfill them.
Find your fire.
After your find it—feed it.
Let no one–NO ONE!–steal it from you.
