Burning Bridges or: Options, Their Limits, and Their Possibilities

June 25, 2011

Simple and clean: We gravitate to that which is the only option. Missions are that: missions. There is no other option but to succeed. Are we setting up the components of an existence that forces us to succeed? Then we aren’t really going anywhere. We may have a place to go, and we may act […]

Language only makes sense in relation to everything else.¹ In language, distinctions are key. All the foreign worlds we seek lie in walking distance.² We, as writers, have the astonishing ability/creative power to create new beings with creative depth, but many forget they already live in walking distance.
