"[My relationships were] like I was in these movies where the script was only half-written. When I’d get to the end of this half-script, the other actors wanted me to ad lib. But I had never gotten the hang of that. That’s why these movies were always box-office failures. Six of them in the past twenty years. I always blew the lines." ~ from my horrible first novel "Learn How To Pretend." (unpublished)(obviously)

Kerouac's Essentials for Prose

These work well for life, too!
  1. Accept loss forever.
  2. Be submissive to everything, open, listening.
  3. No fear or shame in the dignity of your experience, language, and knowledge.
  4. Be in love with your life.
