Sarah Miller’s essay The Movie Assassin has been all over my Twitter feed this week, so I finally took the time to read it last night. It’s not easy to classify what it’s about. It’s about the movie The English Patient, but also really not. It’s about writing and being true to yourself and the power of words to shape a person:
If you write thousands of sentences that have absolutely nothing to do with what you think or feel those sentences are still what you will become. You can turn yourself into another person. I turned myself into another person.
I’m not sure what else to say about it, except this: take the time to read it.
