One of the big delusions of our time is “If..then”. “If I only had this new laptop then i could write my book.” “If I only had that new Dslr Camera i could really take wonderful pictures and be a famous photographer.” “If I only had the perfect partner - i would be sexy, gratious, witty and wonderful”.
No. Start with doing what you can with what you have. There will be no angel lifting you out from what is your life, no gadget that will make you smarter, better, more creative. If you want to write..get a pencil an a sheet of paper. If you want to take photo…take anything that makes photos. If you want to be social critic..post in tumblr..do it. Don’t wait for approval. Don’t wait for permission. Don’t ask your friends,don’t ask your parents. . Don’t let anybody stop you. We have enough publishers, editors, copycats…create your own stuff. Throw your own Spaghetti against the wall. It’s not our job to decide what will stick..our job is to throw….so throw with all your might!
