Several Short Sentences About Writing
The central fact of your education is this:

You’ve been taught to believe that what you discover by thinking,

By examining your own thoughts and perceptions,

Is unimportant and unauthorized.

As a result, you fear thinking,

And you don’t believe your thoughts are interesting

Because you haven’t learned to be interested in them.
