So, I have begun. I have begun to write. After many long years of composing things in my head, it was time to write. Fear of failure, sky high standards, lack of a pen(sometimes) all conspired to stop me, but now that I have started I have set some rules for myself.
1. When you feel like writing, sit down and write (or jot down an idea on a receipt until you can sit).
2. When you do not feel like writing, take a breath, change the scenery, but do not wait too long. If you do not feel like it, write down why. Learn where being uninspired will take you.
3. Trust your voice. It's in there somewhere.
Good and bad writing begets more ideas, more edits, more directions, more clues. Write.
