A Lesson from Sleeping Beauty, Oedipus Rex, & Marc Andreessen
This is the best thing I've read in a long time...
Really great sentiment!
I really enjoyed this essay and I’m sharing it with my workshopping group. Thank you so much.
Great advice that extends far beyond writing
what a wonderful piece of writing!
We don't spend nearly enough time talking about this stuff. The Oedipal Mother, the Complex, fatal flaws, and mythic tragedies.
And I don't know why. Maybe because we have been conditioned to think it's taboo to talk about this stuff. Or maybe just because there aren't enough people writing about it.
Such a great read.
Do it if you no longer care whether or not you’ll succeed because it’s that worth it.
“if you dare to venture, you will be taxed with a painful level of self-consciousness or an existential awakening that is rude beyond expectations”
Does it have to be painful? Why? How about joyful? Maybe it’s taking out of context.
