- Live my life, pay attention, ask hard questions, engage in deep conversations, and follow my curiosity.
- Notice a story I want to exist in the world.
- Write it.
- Edit it.
- Finish it.
- Share it with people who have a specific, personal reason to love it.
- Publish it (myself or with a publisher).
- Reflect on what I can learn from it.
