Self motivational exercise to get the creative juices flowing in three… two…
Write! Look out upon your life with confident trepidation man! Confident trepidation doesn’t even work as the structure of a feeling, but who cares! Seize whatever it is life is trying to throw at you and make the most of it because if you don’t, if you just keep ducking out of the way of those opportunities, eventually you’ll look behind yourself and you’ll see a brick wall colourfully splattered with junk – the bleeding remains of could-have-beens. You’ll see a trembling tapestry of missed moments and false awakenings and fucking junk that could have been useful once but is now just a monument to your cowardice. The coward who ducked and flinched instead of reaching out and risking taking it all in the face. Why can’t you seize one single moment and run with it, make your life out of what you’ve been thrust rather than constantly ‘trying’ (abstract – to whine) to make your life nothing out of so many somethings? If you want to sculpt a masterpiece out off clay and all life keeps throwing you is play dough, do something with the damned play dough. Hone your skills with the damned play dough and maybe one day when you’re ready you’ll be handed all the clay you need. What the fuck does that even mean?
