I want my writing to inspire thought and feeling. I want readers to laugh, cry, scream, set it on fire, throw it out, hug someone, think I’m idiot, think I’m awesome, not think about me at all, love it, hate it, try and steal it. I want my writing to inspire people to write. I want my writing to inspire others to bring good into the world. I want frowns turned into smiles. I want fear filled minds to be freed with thought. I want broken hearts mended, because I think you can find, “the bandages inside the pen and the stitches on the radio” (from Boxer by The Gaslight Anthem).
