I came to win
Some harsh but very very true words
Some people took offense with this on Twitter. But as a writer struggling with anxiety, I’d say: if you’re not ready to submit without apologizing for your work, you are not ready to submit.
Never apologize for your work.
I think he comes off a little harsh here but I also think it’s genuinely good advice. I’m no stranger to the “everything I make is terrible” brain weasels, but seriously, don’t say that to someone you’re submitting your work to professionally. I mean, would you roll up to a job interview and say “hey, I’m probably not very qualified for this job, but consider hiring me anyway”? I’m gonna go ahead and say you would probably not.
Fake it til you make it if you have to. Tell the voice in your head that tells you that thing you made is terrible that YOU may have no choice but to listen to its bullshit, but you’re not going to make anyone else listen to its bullshit. I know it’s not easy, but work at it anyway.
I don’t think it comes off as harsh at all—I work in publishing and this is pretty standard wisdom. You wouldn’t do this applying for a job in any other field, regardless of how you actually felt about your abilities; it’s not different just because you’re an artist.

THAT THEY’RE NOT TRYING
BECAUSE HOW THE FUCK WOULD YOU KNOW IF THEY’RE TRYING OR NOT
JUST BECAUSE IT DOESN’T LIVE UP TO YOUR STANDARDS DOESN’T MEAN THEY’RE NOT TRYING
if I ever fall into a coma someone please come secretly tweeze my eyebrows so I can make all the nurses hella jealous of my unconscious eyebrow game.
Stop making books into films and start making them into a tv show so we could have a lot more detail to them and they can stick to the book easier.
I thought this was going to make me annoyed but everything turned out better than expected

At a deposition, Ferguson’s former police chief revealed that his staff did not keep records of incidents in which officers used force against citizens, so long as no one died; in other words, there was no way of telling how often incidents like Davis’ happened.
remember shit like this when they talk about how mike brown’s shooter had no disciplinary record
