Creative Inspiration: Diablo Cody

I know it's probably cliche´for one stripper-turned-writer to take such inspiration from another stripper-turned-writer. But I'm consistently impressed with stuff that Diablo Cody has to say, especially about the writing process.

Here's an excerpt from a new interview in BUST:

"We live in a day and age where you have the opportunity to put your writing out there every day. You don't have to worry about rejection letters, you don't have to worry about the man, you don't have to worry about publishers. Write a blog, make a 'zine, self-publish. We have the technology. There are so many people who will try to force try to force you to apologize at every turn. Do not do it. If anything, amplify the traits that chafe people--there is a reason that you are provoking a response."
