Things I’ve learned as a #writer

  1. You’re going to have a lot of false starts and rewrites. That’s okay! It’s part of the writing process and it ultimately makes the story better.
  2. You are going to have moments you think your writing is garbage. Keep at it. A moment of inspiration will come and you might even transform the garbage into something amazing.
  3. It’s going to take a lot of hard word and dedication. It’s also going to take giving up times of inspiration because something else requires your time and attention. You’re going to have to plod through family dinners or work or grocery shopping when you’d rather be writing.

Remember writing something great is about a series of met opportunities and moments of inspiration. Any one writing session won’t make the difference. It is the complete sum of your effort that creates something special! Have fun!!
