Write away from everything familiar--free yourself to "make it new."

The idea that it’s just a story makes

some people uneasy but when you step back, all human culture is based on a story. Democracy is a story. Marriage is a story. A company’s culture is a story. Religions each have a

story. What often entangles us in the desolate kind of why

bother is being unwilling or unable to do the work of writing a new story that we can wholeheartedly love. What you want—and must have—to bother again is a story you believe in."
