The Story of September in Five Parts -- Parts V

I was in the room with two true artists this month -- Tarell Alvin McCraney and Terence BlanchardThey both left me speechless after dazzling me with their talent and hard work. I realized in that moment what they were, what I wasn’t, and what I wanted to be. I’ve been dying to be an artists, seriously, I was dying, bit by bit, day by day. I stopped the slow death a few years ago and claimed the title playwright but it was a fake move. I felt it but I hadn’t done the work. Now I do the work but when I’m around real motherfuckin’ artists I feel like a complete fake, like I’m playing at this playwriting and theatre thang.
