My whole structure of the network I am building to support my writing is designed to promote novelty for me, because how else do you keep it interesting? How else do you cater to the different tides in which you find yourself swimming?
People who become rigid are people who are dooming themselves to irrelevance. I don’t know how one can live in the world and not be of the world, in the sense that you write about what is going on and how you feel about it.
If you get scared about saying things, and you back away from telling the truth, then the work you make is not going to be worth reading. I always want to be worth reading – so I empathise and I get angry, as necessary. I am a metaphorical parkour runner in my heart, and I have to play jazz with the notes my environment gives me.
