You should write about what makes you uncomfortable. Does 300,000 United States Dollars in cumulative losses make you uncomfortable? Stories should be relatable? Is this relatable to other people who make 400,000 in fiat a year ?
I think about the day I furiously lost 32k just shorting support and buying resistance, back and forth until it was all gone. I had my first reset in San Francisco. Writing makes it feel better; everyone should journal. Prisoners, domestic abuse victims, zero to one type body hackers. Meditation is jogging for the mind. Journaling is a C2 rower, less appreciated than jogging but much better for certain performance goals.
Don’t give your money to the guy who tells you he can make you a billion dollars, give to the guy who lost a billion and kept trading. Should you give it to the guy who desperately buys indicator after indicator because the day he gets back to square zero he can be a complete real human being again?
Experiences are grist for the mill and starting paragraphs with aphorisms covers up lostness. The guy on the internet that asks why number go down is the best guy.
You think of a different life where you’re clever enough to write stories in the second person and eke out an existence telling people you spent three days writing the first page of your latest short story collection. The amphitheater of grown ass students there for class credit go wild. Their MFA in progress teacher is the saddest one. You shouldn’t bed her. You enjoy writing and remember how much you remember liking writing. God how good was Tao Lin and the levels of literary stardom. He’s probably not allowed to write for the Stranger anymore. The Philip Roth level of literary stardom. The type of existence you can’t think about without crying. Call me a laureate motherfucker I’m not just a man anymore. Can I use the word galley in conversation? Write a thesis about Faulkner and flannery in conversation.
I send my girlfriend words that are meaningful. The first one i sent was the Wikipedia entry for tsundere. Next i will send the one for hikkokimori. Then I will send the one for oppa.
Write what you know like blowing three - hundred - thousand - dollars and risking a job the planet would kill for a thousand times over to sleep 5am to 5pm and read 53 manhwas in 5 days. My parents were blessed to have a son. A man without an imagination so he has to write what he knows. The less than symbol is the best symbol >.
Reasonably priced Japanese whiskey should be about 59.99 United States dollars and is far more satisfying than similarly priced scotch.
