“Forcing yourself to fit under certain rules will eventually blur your identity. Of course, once you have a strong personality, that many also pressure you to behave in a certain way. But my point is this:
if you can create a new genre, it means that the rules you make are acknowledged by others. If you have the ability to create a rule, you also have the ability to break down one.”
