I have not achieved the success I want. Yet.

How far will you go to get something you really want?

It depends on what it is. If it's at the expense of someone else I dont pursue it. If it's beneficial for myself and/or others I'll stop at nothing. I have lied and manipulated in the past but I don't misalign myself with truth if possible.

What advice would you give to a new writer?

Own the fact that you will write crap to begin with and even as you progress, accept it as part of growing

learn how to critique writing and explain the specifics of what does and doesnít work for you, it will give you insights you donít realise are there until theyíre articulated.

Seperate critique of your work from emotional or personal attack on you the writer. Most people who comment want to help not tear you down, so accept it in good faith

Learn from critique but donít be afraid to stand by your writing because some critique will help you understand why you wrote what you did and why it should stay as it is.  This will help your poetic voice and confidence in how you write and why.

Not every critic is right and poetic subjectivity is different for all but if three or more writers comment on specifics that should be changed do well to heed the advice.

Have fun with words, writing properly is work but the joy of creating something is worth the endeavour

Read, read, read!

Anything I forgot ?

No you havent, your post captured it all.
Are you forgetful? (do you always know where you left things?)

Your thoughts on stillness?

If I let myself can spend hours just sitting and doing nothing, staring at a tree or a field or even cars passing by. I think stillness is underrated as a relaxative. Itís like prayer or meditation, so long as youíre not doing it out of a depressive impulse, which I have done. Then itís like cement filling your muscles and arteries.

Is falling in love a good thing?

Depends on your definition of love. Love ought to have as many names as the Eskimos have for snow. I tend to subscribe to the idea that one grows, not falls, in love.

How far ahead do you plan for a year? Actually i dont plan things, there are social events of course, for the rest I like to see if time has any challenge in store for me. I try to ceize the day be it often in a quiet inward manner. How many times have you moved in your life?
