“If something inside you is real,
we will probably find it interesting,
and it will probably be universal.
So you must risk placing real emotion at the 
center of your work.
Write straight into the emotional center of things.
Write towards vulnerability.
Don’t worry about appearing sentimental.
Worry about being unavailable;
worry about being absent or fraudulent.
Risk being unliked.
Tell the truth as you understand it.
If you’re a 
writer, you have a moral obligation to do this
and it is a revolutionary act –
truth is always subversive.”
