“That’s why I write, because life never works except in retrospect. You can’t control life, at least you can control your version.”

“Bad things don’t happen to writers; it’s all material.”
Life is hard.
The universe often throws things at us that we don’t know how to handle. Sometimes we wonder if we’ll even survive the latest torment. At least as a writer, I can make something good out of these trials. When I’m powerless in my circumstance, I have a way to deal with it because I can put it to paper.
And life goes on.
