If someone believes that the world is good as is, that this is it, we’ve reached the pinnacle of human existence…then you know what, don’t write. Get out of the business. Go lounge somewhere. I write because I don’t think we’re done. And I think that we make progress by telling our personal stories. You know, the personal story can change the world.
