As in Life, Doubly So in Writing

'Nobody gives you power. You just take it.'
--Roseanne Barr

I thought of my friend Tim Russo when I came across this quote today. I love his smarts and his energy and his (occasional) righteous anger. Mostly, I love that he writes like a dream, and about things that matter. Only things that matter. And how many writers can really say that? I only wish that the next step--after finding your voice and then finding an audience, which he's nicely conquered--earning one's keep from it, were as easy and clear to hash out. For me, it took about half a lifetime to figure out. Here's hoping he's a lot quicker and smarter.
