“You know, they ask me if I were on a desert island and I knew nobody would ever see what I wrote, would I go on writing. My answer is most emphatically yes. I would go on writing for company. Because I’m creating an imaginary — it’s always imaginary — world in which I would like to live.” -William S. Burroughs:
Each of us has an internal audience of sleeping possibilities waiting to be awakened by the creative activity of imagination.
It is for this reason that the work of a creator must never be deterred by the absence of fanfare and external recognition.
Whether anyone “out there” is listening or not, there is a full-house “in here” that can only be aroused by the boldly projected sounds of a visionary who dares to tell his story.
Don’t sleepwalk through life just because no one seems to be paying attention to you.
All audiences are not visible.
Stir your soul!
Wake up, make some noise, and create.
