The key to anything in life is to just do whatever you need to do to get it done. With writing, that means, sit down and write. That’s it. When we bog ourselves down with all the dos and don’ts of writing, we forget to just write. You don’t have to make it perfect right now. That’s what editing is for. Right now, sit down to your keyboard, or your paper and pencil, or whatever it is you use to write with, and write. That’s it.
For the longest time I didn’t want to write on this site unless I had something swirling around my head that needed to be written. So then I could go months at a time without anything on here. The things is I didn’t like that at all, but at the same time I didn’t know what to say without thinking I was writing the same thing over and over again.
So then I came up with this idea to make sure I write on a regular basis. I came up with my 365 day journey. I’ve been loving it. Not, it’s not always about my daughter, per say. But I’m still writing about my journey and me. I’m loving it and my sincere hope is you are loving it, too.
The other key is to always do it from your heart. Don’t be fake. Others will be able to see that. Be true to yourself and the writing will show it.
