So here’s the thing about the internet. I keep finding stuff written by other people that I wish I had written. Best I can do is repeat it, and link to it.
Here’s Neil Gaiman’s hopes for his readers. He’s one of my favourite storytellers and I wish I’d written this for you. All I can do is say a resounding YES!
May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.
