"Enjoy the freedom and independence of being unpublished. Oh never mind; you will not understand the freedom and independence of being unpublished until you get a book deal. But trust me, in ten years you’ll look back at those early notebooks and recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much autonomy you enjoyed and how many long, lazy days you were free to spending working on a single chapter.
It made me miss my sketchbooks and notebooks and spending time filling pages full of odd doodles and notes and mixed media experiments just to get the crazy stuff out of my head.
