the marrow

Note to self: From whichever weird angle you view the world, make this your starting point for your writing. Those absurd thoughts you can’t stop thinking about, those inadequate feelings you keep replaying in your head—write them down. See what comes of it. Those distinct parts of yourself that scare you, feel shameful, or excite you: that's the marrow, the only place worth starting from. The magic of writing: you never know whose lonely soul you're buoying; it could even be your own.
