Thoughts @ 1:47am
My goal as a writer would be this: I'd like to write stories unrestrained by and outside of my ego. I don't even know if that's possible. I'm not even quite sure how big my ego is. I imagine that it's like the tip of an iceberg, where I'd think to myself "Well, it's not that bad" but then if I were brave enough to take a dive down below into those icy waters and open my eyes, there it is -- huge and unyielding. If I could get out of myself long enough, I wouldn't want to just see the bigger picture, but the biggest picture. This is my impossible goal. Truthfully, I think everyone needs one of those. Everyone needs a goal which is almost very nearly within reach, just so that we might catch a little piece of it - the tiniest thread. I wonder what one ought with a little bit of impossible. Could you imagine?
