We all carry within ourselves the possibility of a good story. 

Take courage when you feel it welling within you. Do not let its illusive nature fool you into creative paralysis; instead, probe at it with a sharp instrument. Cut through the excessive noise, wield your pen to write the words fingering your heart. Embrace this sensation, the same dizzy warmth that overcomes you when you are blinded by love. Let it loose. Do not hoard it for yourself or save it for another day. Give it no rest or interruptions. Let it fill your porous cavern, seeping through its walls like freshly watered earth. Take every observance, every experience, every unfinished line that is imprisoned within you, and send it off into the beguiling wild, knowing that all of this is a beautiful part of your wondrous becoming.
