This came from a very unlikely source. An embarrassing source, even. I was doing the crossword on Sunday and right next to it was the daily horoscope. Leo. I skimmed it. Here was the last sentence:
"Lean into your originality."
I'm developing new work and starting new books, trying to take risks. It's a bit intimidating, as you probably know. For some reason this line helps me.
As long as it doesn't only apply to Sunday, January 25, I should be fine.
