it looks better on paper.
it is easy to write things simply because they look good on paper:
everyone around me seems to be genius at something.
creative in some beautiful way.
but many times i see this creativity completely impersonally.
almost as if it doesn't exist at all.
perhaps this is why the internet situation isn't a good one.
you can create a whole false identity for yourself.
all the resources to be creative without your own ideas, thoughts, or images are all at your disposal.
more than that, it is possible to make it through life without anyone ever really knowing all of you.
this is frightening.
frightening both to be known and not known.
watch yourself as you write.
you might find yourself thinking you feel something because of this interesting fusion between real emotion and aesthetic appeal.
