“When I write, I feel like an armless, legless man with a crayon in his mouth.” – Kurt Vonnegut
It can be easy to forget that even the greats are full of awkwardness and clumsiness. Yet the man quoted above is known to have changed the face of American literature.
But despite Vonnegut’s success, he didn’t start that way. It was full of fumbles, false starts, and embarrassing mistakes. Yet where others in his shoes stopped, he chose to keep going. Forcing himself to move forward. He kept taking one more step, even when the process did not seem rewarding.
Awkward and clumsy is not just OK… it’s part of the way.
