My gateway to writing began with “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,” through solely the opening paragraph. I was hooked by that point, and I said the EXACT SAME THING as letter c. I didn’t know you could do that in a book. I have moved forward from the epic gonzo tale, and reach for many a book as a guiding voice. However, a copy of Hunter S. Thompson’s legendary story sits on my desk and I crack the binding at least once a month.

I live the idea of permission slips. Show the reader a new way of seeing things, and how to tell stories. Better yet, turn the table on yourself and make sure you never have to ask for permission to write your story. Any artist that asks “Can I do this?” isn’t ready to do it.
