Know your old mentors.

Why start a journey from scratch? You
Will collect your own suppliers; purchase
New charts to plan you trip, though
Why start your journey from scratch...
My journey is far from ending, billions
Of words I will connect together before
I can call myself established, but I
Did not start my journey from scratch.
With the aid of mentors - great writers
Before me - their journey I studied, learnt
From, and used as a machine to teleport
Myself further into my writing, for old
Writing tricks, which made great writers
Great I developed, easing my burdens
Tenfold. Learn how to be great in your
Endeavours by following and learning
From great people.
