"I read," I say...

"I study and read. 
I bet I've read everything you've read.
Don't think I haven't.
I consume libraries.
I wear out spines and ROM-drives.
I do things like get in a taxi and say,
"The library, and step on it."
My instincts concerning syntax and mechanics are better than your own,
I can tell,
with all due respect. 
But it transcends the mechanics.
I'm not a machine.
I feel and believe.
I have opinions.
Some of them are interesting.
I could, if you'd let me,
-David Foster Wallace
What a genius.
He inspires me.
Yes, I can write.
And have things to say.
It's just that mostly
I'm nervous to 
do so.
