What the Point Is, if You’ve Read My Book, Has in Common With Oprah Winfrey

I like to keep it short, so here is my favorite quote from Dostoevsky’s “The Possessed.

It’s a good thing we live in a day when the world can’t be saved from us. I mean I’m not saying we shouldn’t be saved, I’m just saying we can’t make a list of things we can’t do.

The “we cant” list was pretty short, and I’ll be the first to admit that I myself am guilty of overreaching, so I’ll stop there.

I could go on, but I wont. The point is, if you’ve read my book, you know that I wrote this. I also know that it’s not always easy to put things into words.

But your own words will make it feel amazing. Its a big step for me to go to that level and be able to do what I have to do. If youve got any ideas, please let me know. I would love to know what a friend would like to do next, so please do.

I want to thank everyone for their very generous and well-wishes. It’s been very rewarding to read and re-read your words during this period and I hope you continue to enjoy my stories.

Your own words don’t help though. The best thing that can happen is that these words will be on my list of words for my story. But I’m a lot more likely to be able to stand here and say, ‘Hmmm, but I haven’t gotten that yet.

So you will be able to stand there and say, No, I’m trying to kill you. You have no memory of how I’m on Deathloop and I don’t remember what this looks like. And, hey, I’m not trying to, I’m just trying to, at least, try and remember what I already remembered.

For the most part, all of my stories are pretty much just my own words. But I think that the most effective part of any story is that it is you telling the story. So when it comes to your story, if it can look like a story, it will be.

This is an interesting point. Some of us actually have a pretty good memory of what we read. But that doesn’t mean that we’re going to remember the stories we read. What I mean is that if you can look at your story as a story, it becomes more than just your own words. It becomes something that you can share with others.
