How would ye bear to draw your latest breath, Where all that's wretched paves the way for death?

Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possible can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.

But social media is great because you put stuff out there and see if it works almost immediately. You can test to see if it will be effective for your company.
