Don’t worry about tomorrow.  Don’t worry about yesterday.  You can’t fix either of those.  One is not broken and the other is unreachable.” “Often times if I try to force my brain to think up new story, it will flatly refuse.” “If you think you need to suffer to create art, I wonder why your art is more important than your wellbeing.” Links mentioned: I Should Be Writing Solo: A Star Wars Story by Mur Lafferty The Secrets: The podcast for serious writers!
