myth ten — writing is about finding the inner self.

if it’s inner, there’s a reason it’s inner. it’s because you stuck it in there and built a brick wall.

don’t let it out.

write what you want people to see, not your hidden secrets. if you share those things with people, you will regret and it will take you forever to get them onto the page.

like i said, write what you don’t know. it’s fast, it’s safe, and it’s far more fun. watching films is about escapism. so is writing. only you get to make the decisions.

that’s enough myths for now. there are many more and we shall return to this later. but we must move onward and upward.

next time, we actually write.
