James Baldwin reminds writers, poets and other creative people to ‘do you work.’ The elephant in the room is that he never says how.

I believe that he didn’t want to give us [as writers] a map because we all have a different job–a different assignment.

The trick is to find out what that assignment, that mission is–and be daring enough to do it.

What part of writing are you drawn to?

Are you rapt by poetry and prose or is it non-fiction? Do you want to do plays and film or essays?

There is more than enough work to do, more than enough languages to do it. But, you must do the work, loves. You must do the work.

With Love & Ink,
