The more research I do, the more blogs, Twitter feeds, etc. that I read, the more advice that I get from other writers or well-meaning people who have an opinion, the more I realize how the whole goddamned world has gone completely fucking insane.
This is why I am doubling down on my commitment to myself to write whatever the fuck I want, however the fuck I want, put it out however the fuck I want, and I don't give a damn about what is supposed the right way or whatever.
The people who decide what the right way is don't have my interests or my knowledge or experience and have not legitimate basis to tell me how to do what I do or why. It doesn't always have to be about making money or becoming famous or whatever.
I can't please everybody but I can please myself, as my masturbating hand will attest.
