What you’ve done before doesn’t mean shit. It’s all about right now.
It’s hard to remember that sometimes, with writing alone it’s hard to put the past writings out of my mind, the best of my posts, the things I’ve already created. I do my best work when I forget about all that shit though. When it doesn’t exist and all I’ve got is the present moment.
It just doesn’t mater what you’ve done. What matters is what you can do on the fly.
Just with my own experiences, I’ve come to believe if you can’t do your thing at the drop of a hat, whatever it is… if you can’t turn on a dime from whatever other shit you’re doing and churn out material, thoughts, a story, or whatever… if you can’t do it off the cuff, then you can’t do it.
