Everybody tells you that to be a writer, you have to read and write a lot. That’s true. But it’s not all of it.
That’ll get you to understand the technical side. It’ll help you grasp the way a story is built. But that doesn’t put meat on the bones you arrange.
For that, you need everything but reading and writing. Go live. Travel. Ride a bike. Eat weird food. Experience things.
Otherwise, what the fuck are you going to talk about?
- Alex Ristea
These words are ringing true for me these days. From Copenhagen, to 5 days in New York, a quick blurt in Vancouver and 4 love-injected days in Mexico – I feel like this is what living a life I LOVE truly feels like. Adventure. Carry-on. Bold requests. Clarity. Friendships that know no boundary. Home.
This site has become my playground as I begin to pen my first book.
And the more I live life, the more I am inspired to write.
So thanks for following the journey. We’re making sounds over here.
Now go, live your life! Make noise! (And then share it with me too.)
