“Follow your inner moonlight; don’t hide the madness.” — Allen Ginsberg
Do you follow Ginsberg’s advice — in your writing and/or in your everyday life?
While it is great to push the limits and test boundaries, it’s also important to know that there is a time and place for everything. Do not let your inner moonlight be diminished by the rules and guidelines set by society, but do not let your madness get you in trouble either.
It’s a fine line, the art of listening to your inner self.
Whether you are focusing on writing or everyday life, you should know when to use your power. A reader is not going to want to read page upon page of ranting madness, just like a person is not going to want to endure hours upon hours of listless ramblings.
Moderation is key, so use it wisely.
I guess the point I’m trying to make is, that with living and writing I hope to keep those around me interested; that’s why I chose a balance between boring and outrageous.
