Lena Dunham Said It!

“Don’t wait around for someone else to tell your story. Do it yourself, by whatever means necessary. We live in this golden age of accessible technology: people make movies on iPhones, people get famous on Vine, which, I don’t even know what Vine is, didn’t even exist a year ago, people get book deals on Twitter, so you can go forth and conquer… I think if I’ve learned anything from my time in a writer’s room, and hearing people talk about their stories every day, it’s that all of us are total freak shows, and our lives have been unfathomably weird if you get into the details. And therefore, the personal is universal, and everybody feels like they were launched into life on a rocket, alone. So to hear other people’s stories is the most soothing thing that can happen to us… Tell the story that only you know, because it makes the world feel smaller, it draws people to you, and I think it connects you in kind of mystical ways.

-Lena Dunham on 2014 SXSW Keynote in Austin, Texas

If you don’t know what SXSW is, read it here and here.

For the full article, I read it earlier here.
