My demons are just angels out to kill me.

I don't know what I'm doing, but you're welcome to watch.

This is my monkey-dance in my monkey cage for the tourists.

Welcome to my studio space. This is where I play with ideas, thoughts, words, paper, etc. Take what you want, leave what you can.

Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia.
--E. L. Doctorow

Stoop and you'll be stepped on; stand tall and you'll be shot at.
-- Carlos A. Urbizo

Don't be afraid. That simple; don't let them scare you. There's nothing they can do to you...a writer always writes. That's what he's for. And if they won't let you write one kind of thing, if they chop you off at the pockets in the market place, then go to another market place. And if they close off all the bazaars then by God go and work with your hands till you can write, because the talent is always there. But the first time you say, "Oh, Christ, they'll kill me!" then you're done. Because the chief commodity a writer has to sell is his courage. And if he has none, he is more than a coward. He is a sellout and a fink and a heretic, because writing is a holy chore.
-- Harlan Ellison, from his anthology Dangerous Visions

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
-- Dr. Suess
