What are you an expert on? Is it because of training, lived experience, or both?
Failure. Because of lived experience.
Excel. Because of training and experience.
p.s. — This has absolutely nothing to do with this post… but whatever. Today I was listening to an album that inspired a story I wrote in 2002. Now I think I might edit and rework the whole thing. Maybe it will get me writing again. That would be fucking great! I’m not going to get my hopes up, though. I’ve had at least some level of writer’s block since late 2017. God, over three years. I don’t even know what possessed me to listen to this album today. It just sort of happened. [Do people still say ‘album’? Well, I do. Fuck, it was 2002. I may be listening digitally now, but I have the CD.]
