“Don’t try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It’s the one and only thing you have to offer. “

    This is so profound and true! Especially when it comes to writing.

      True, particularly relevant for writers. But I think it is true in general. Maybe more than ever in today’s world.
