1. Artists make art for themselves. Art is an honest expression. Artists who pander to their fans by trying to make music “for” their fans make empty, transparent art. The true fan does not want you to make music for them, they want you to make music for you, because that’s the whole reason they fell in love with you in the first place.

  2. You will live more curiously if you write. You will become a scientist, if not of the natural world than of whatever world you care about. More of that world will pop alive. You will see more when you look at it.

  3. About talent

    Faulkner: At one time I thought the most important thing was talent. I think now that the young man or the young woman must possess or teach himself, train himself, in infinite patience, which is to try and to try and to try until it comes right. That is, to throw away anything that is false no matter how much he might love that page or that paragraph. The most important thing is insight, that is, curiosity – to wonder, to mull, and to muse why it is that man does what he does. And if you have that, then I don’t think the talent makes much difference.

    Audience: How would you suggest that he get this insight? Through experience?

    Faulkner: Yes, and then the greatest part of experience is in the books, to read. To watch people, to never judge people. To watch people, what they do, without intolerance. Simply to learn why it is they did what they did. – Faulkner at Virginia
