I write and I post about what I love

Your twenties sort of happen to you and you can’t really control what you’re doing, and then in your thirties, you get to choose how you want to shape what happened to you.

To begin with, you need to write. This seems axiomatic because it is. The only way to amass a pile of words into a book is to shovel some every single day. No days off. You have to form this habit; without it you are screwed. I’m going to assume everyone who keeps reading already has this down. If you don’t — you won’t make it. My best advice on how to form this habit is twofold: Get comfortable staring at a blank screen and not writing. This is a skill. If you can not write and avoid filling that time with distractions, you’ll get to the point where you start writing. Open your manuscript and just be with it.

Scientis (ahli bukti) Indonesia, janganlah bermimpi dia akan bisa leluasa bisa mengembang selama pemerintah Indonesia dikendalikan, dipengaruhi, atau diawasi oleh negara lain beralasan kapitalisme, negara manapun juga di bawah kolong langit ini. Kemerdekaan ilmu alam itu hidup atau mati dengan kemerdekaan negara.
