The attic is clear and clean, light cascades in from a vaulted ceiling, the beams meeting in a series of arches. All that is there is Malcolm’s old writer’s chair and the table that was painted so many times it became a rainbow of sorts, chaotic perhaps, but that was so him. I think he needed this sort of space to be creative in, a blank page for the eyes and ears, so that what came to him was purely his creations, stories eager to be told. Creative writing was his life and the words he gave us all still help so many.

Write with the emotion that burns, the joys that sing and the tears you never cried because you weren’t sure anyone would care. Write with your own words because they are yours, only the ones that feel right in your mouth. Because we all need to hear you, and you do too. How else can you discover who you are? So I don’t care about spelling or grammar or verbs or adjectives. all I wanna know is, “Are you okay?” I need to be sure that you can still feel your soul, that you care so much about this world and others it hurts that others suffer. I need to be sure that you feel the duty to use your talents to fix this world, because this is our home, not some hotel, so don’t check out, stay awake, stay right here with those who care so much about you that we hurt if you do. That’s love. You got it as a birth right so hold on. Just write, keep writing and be as bold as you dare. Let it out, let it go, then let it be.
