“How vain is it to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.” Henry David Thoreau
Too many books are like the “food” at the checkout counter in the grocery store: heavily processed saccharine quick hits that take the edge off but do nothing to assuage the underlying hunger and ultimately completely immemorable.
The formulaic writing from 50 Shades of Grey through the pro athlete’s canned “My Story” to the ghost written politician taking credit for the work of others and trumpeting their “leadership” while accomplishing nothing of value fill the shelves like so many variations of cookies. All similar. All empty calories.
Do something incredible that leaves others in awe.
Life a life that is epic and deserves to be captured on the page.
