For 2011's Bruno

This letter is just for you. Bruno from 2011. That’s when you first decided to start writing right? Well, there are some things you wish you had known back then, but you didn’t and no one told them to you, so I might as well say them now before it’s too late: You love writing in short sentences and listing items, so let’s do it that way. Writing is your dream, that much is clear,…
