“Don’t bend; don’t water it down; don’t try to make it logical; don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.”
— Franz Kafka

Don’t live in the grey. Love the quote. Thank you for sharing.
Absolutely! Thanks for reading 🙂 How does it hit you? What passion are you chasing that doesn’t involve a grey area?
You’re very welcome! I was a business major in college, my last semester I took a theater elective. Through university I always found myself in writing electives to fill credits. I’ve always been a writer. I moved down to NYC a week after graduation and have been in NYC for one year pursuing writing full time, in acting classes, working a day job to pay my bills.
I’ve been living off 17,000$ a year. I don’t drink smoke, I eat a lot less than I should. I committed and made the decision to go all in. No grey.
I salute you! That is dedication. I will remember your name, Erik, and watch for you on the shelves 🙂
I figure I will be very mad at myself if I don’t give it a real go while I’m young! 🙂
No regrets 🙂
