a process
  • so 80% of what you write cannot be published because there's too much of yourself in it.

    so the hardest process of writing something is not writing actually, but cutting.

    so you have to remind yourself that this is not a diary (although everything you write is always a diary of some kind).

    so you write, and you remove, and sometimes with a pair of sharp scissors, but sometimes with the pair of your hands.

    brute force, yes, because sometimes you're in a hurry, and sometimes you just cannot stand the familiar face staring back.

    snip snip and pull and rip

    so that's why.

    sometimes the ripped edges can be seen, raw and revolting.
