Write passionately and persistently.Turn the powerful word and wield the editing sword with abandon until the page is cut so fine that its edges leave no waste and burn in the fire of clarity.Push personal limits by carving a story so memorable yet so uniquely familiar that it echoes even in your sleep.And leave a legacy so steeped in excellence and creativity that your children’s children nod in knowing pride that the writer remembered gave all.
