As a writer (or any kind of artist), have some crazy ass beliefs. You need them in order to party with hard-boiled detectives, cyborgs, killers, elves, cowboys…what have you. That other stuff? Those mundanities that keep people ensconced in drudge and toil? For the writer, those mundanities are parts of a game that must be played. One that needs to be honored, but in the end, just another game.
Always and forever, the PARTY is where it’s at.
