The Insincerity of Words.

Words are like sex. If you can’t be vulnerable, it’s just an act of repetition.

“Writing is like having sex. It’s not that hard to do. It’s just hard to find someone to pay for it.”

When we write or talk insincerely, we’re essentially saying to our readers — or partners — “Don’t wait for me.”

Like with sex, if you want good head, it doesn’t hurt to givegood head.

If we’re not telling them about their dancing, why admit their crazy monkey sex isn’t worth a banana?

Sincerity means dropping the image façade and showing a willingness to be vulnerable. Tell it the way it is, lumps and all. Don’t worry if your presentation isn’t perfect; ask from your heart. Keep it simple and people will open up to you.

I did a poor imitation of Don Draper for 40 years before writing my first novel. I'm currently in the final stages of a children's book. Lucky me.
