I need to link up with more writers, creators, makers, artists, etc. I have a million different ideas and platforms that I want to bring to fruition, but it’s fucking impossible to do it all alone. And I feel like I extend the opportunity but N’s never want to take advantage. Like right now, literally at this very moment, I’m looking for ten writers - six women, four men - to work with me on creating this media network. Something like BlackAndSexyTV. Telling stories the way we want them to be told, not sugar-coating or having the same bland-ass storylines over and over but really making something dope.
It’s like people complain about how there’s no representation and we could really start a movement here, but when the opportunity presents itself, N’s are scared or nervous or whatever the fuck their excuse is. I don’t get it. If you want to do it, then let’s quit talking and do it. That shit is beyond frustrating.
“Friends can help each other. A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself - and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That’s what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is.”—Jim Morrison (via permeate)
