      This is great.

      I've heard a similar line attributed to Joan Didion, and recently saw Jia Tolentino say the same thing in Trick Mirror. I feel similarly, it orders your thoughts to write them and explore them on paper where they can't get away from you.

      “Why does one begin to write? Because she feels misunderstood, I guess. Because it never comes out clearly enough when she tries to speak. Because she wants to rephrase the world, to take it in and give it back again differently, so that everything is used and nothing is lost. Because it’s something to do to pass the time until she is old enough to experience the things she writes about.” – Nicole Krauss

      “When I sit down to write a book, I do not say to myself, ‘I am going to produce a work of art.’ I write it because there is some lie that I want to expose, some fact to which I want to draw attention, and my initial concern is to get a hearing.” – George Orwell
