Meeting Zadie Smith at the Literature Festival in Krakow

“The language itself can contain your ideas,”

so WRITE;

even if you may “feel like a stranger in the act of writing,”

and you won’t meet your old writing self half-way along the page.

You’ll be amazed at the capacities you will discover in the act of writing.

READ;

you might not know it yet, but an age of “novel nausea” or the years-of-less-and-less-time for reading might catch up with you sooner than you think…

So WRITE

to be read by strangers – they may turn out to be some of your best readers;

BE FREE,

embrace freedom in your way of life and at the same time respect the language you’re writing in – staying true to your language in today’s world is, as you may agree, a “radical act.”

SHARE YOUR IDEAS WITH NO SHAME,

don’t be afraid to be perceived by others as a “friend of failure,”

as long as you are your own true friend…
