Write something true. Write something frightening. Write something close to the bone. You are on this planet to tell the story of what you saw here. What you heard. What you felt. What you learned. Any effort spent in that pursuit cannot be wasted.

Any way that you can tell that story more truly, more vividly, more you-ly, is the right way.
