cool.

how do i start?

1/  what do you WANT to learn?

what do i write?

2/ what did you recently learn?

3/ what did you recently build?

4/ what weird shit did you recently stumble upon?

writing is a lot easier when you aren't worried about who is reading

how do i start?

have a conversation about the problem

how do i start?

walk through different things to try

explore & unpack how it works

we’re in this crazy situation called life that we don’t really understand,

We need more storytellers

Get it down.

Take chances.

It may be bad, 

but it’s the only way you can do anything really good.

 – William Faulkner
