“Isn’t it surreal to give narrative shape to life events that seemed so arbitrary and chaotic a decade ago? And surreal to think that everything that happens now will get its own arc in my mind/writing in another decade?”

“You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence.”

Octavia Butler

I love this quote. A common question for writers seems to be “how” are they “good?” One, “good” is a matter of interpretation. Two, they write. Over and over.

“I’m a firm believer in thinking inside the box. The first thing I do when approaching a new project is to give myself rigid guidelines and precise limits. That’s how I begin to think. If I were told that I could create anything in any medium, using any amount of space and any amount of time, I’d stand in a field and scream. Tennis needs rules, a baseline, and a net. If you could hit the ball anywhere, it would be called golf. So it goes with creativity.”

Ben Schott, quoted in My Ideal Bookshelf (2012)

Please note: “everyone who works retail, admin, or labor” is pretty much everyone. I can’t remember the last time I worked somewhere without “security” cameras that monitored employees.

I’m having a good laugh right now because our associates just got collectively reprimanded for leaning on the counters during 8 hour shifts on their feet, because it isn’t “professional” looking.  So apparently they can put up with a camera over their shoulder to make sure they do their jobs correctly, but a cop with a gun cant?  

Amen.
