I, Jesse Giles Christiansen, considering myself to be of sound health and lucid mind, hereby pledge these vows in order to build a lighthouse to follow when the A&E Sea tosses me to and fro, even maroons me, so that I may always return to and aspire from its constant and safe harbor.
I hereby promise to always do everything within my power to:
• Produce the highest quality literary art possible,
• Cultivate, nourish, and suspend my readers,
• Approach my publisher and literary team with an open mind
and malleable soul,
• Help other collaborative artists reach their goals,
• Respect my contemporaries at all costs,
• Maintain the highest personal fitness and integrity at all
• Celebrate the success of others more than my own, and
• Love my family before my words.
Please accept these humble vows.
Yours in literature,
