I love the idea that people tell their stories on social media. I love that there are what Norman Mailer called, ‘advertisements for myself.’
The truth is you organically have your own style that’s going to come out—even when you copy other people, especially in the beginning. And the end result is that you get this amazing amalgam of all the people that you respect, and it comes out in amazing ways. To think otherwise—to think that you’re somehow pure and your voice is independent of all the others is probably a little grandiose.
