Obsess over the dead. Not living writers. Read everything you can. Let it all seep in. Pay attention to the language around you. Don’t discard the lowbrow. Don’t venerate the highbrow. Find a different path. Translate foreign poems into English. Remember: an interesting life isn’t enough. Don’t worship your teachers. Your peers aren’t your competition. Your competition is silence, the Void. Writing is hard work. Don’t forget that.
