There’s this David Carr quote that I found. I can see in my notes—I was just searching for it in my notes, and I wrote it out in August 15, 2016. The quote is, “I now inhabit a life I don’t deserve, but we all walk this earth feeling we are frauds. The trick is to be grateful.” And I think that sort of opened something up for me, this idea that I was never going to feel sure of what I was doing, even if there are moments when I’m like, OK, I know I’ve hit something, this is the direction I need to go. I’m never going to feel confident that I’m making the right choice or that I’m the right person to tell a story or that I’m not going to make a complete fool of myself. You just have to work in spite of that.
