"If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work and give orders. Instead, teach them to learn for the vast and endless sea." --Antoine de Saint-Exupery What about me? For me, writing is a way to fully express what I want to say, a way to touch people and influence society. I believe that it is possible to change firm- set minds, and I think that it must be done. Philosophical Passivism makes the educated and intelligent more at fault for the illnesses of the world than the thoughtless masses, because what might be opposed is tolerated. I want to hone my writing to inspire action. I like Kafka, Dostoyevsky, Lovecraft, Tolstoy, Patrick Rothfuss, and other authors with dark and imposing styles of writing.
