    was the spiritual equivalent of Charlie Bucket finding the golden ticket in his Wonka bar.
    Mon S.has quoted3 years ago
    I’m lucky, someday in the future I’ll see what I’ve written here and think how young I still was and how much more there was ahead. Until then I’ll keep writing things down, both the things I make up and the things that have happened. It is the way I’ve learned to see my life.
    MaríaJosé E.H.has quoted3 years ago
    . I believe, more than anything, that this grief of constantly having to face down our own inadequacies is what keeps people from being writers. Forgiveness, therefore, is key. I can’t write the book I want to write, but I can and will write the book I am capable of writing.
