"If you want to make someone feel emotion, you have to make them let go. Listening to something is an act of surrender.
I want to rethink ‘surrender’ as an active verb."
Andrea Gibson - ‘I choose to write what is in my bones.’
"Don’t google your name. Ever.
Don’t “search” for yourself
on anything that glows in the dark.
Don’t let your beauty
be something anyone can turn off.
Don’t edit your ugly out of your bio.
Let your light come from the fire.
Let your pain be the spark,
but not the timber.
Remember, you didn’t come here
to write your heart out.
You came to write it in."
