I liked your idea of looking for magic words, even when you don’t think there are any. You asked me why I don’t let things get me down. I think it’s because I’ve always tried to find my own magic words ever since I was young. That’s really what writing is, isn’t it? Searching for the magic words. So I guess I’d have to say, this is what keeps me going, figuring out what I have to say and putting it down on paper, word by word.
