Just Write

I was browsing through newly-discovered writers’ blogs such as this one and this one, and  was taken with how often a writer must be reminded to stick with it and just write.

Get typing

Don’t worry about getting the perfect words down on the page/screen right away – just write.

Don’t worry about the laundry, or the dishes, or the toys all over the floor – just write.

Don’t worry about the plausibility of a police officer wearing her hair that way, or the kind of tomatoes that grow in Ontario in September – just write.

The extra research, the editing, the rewriting will come soon enough. Just enjoy the now and write.

(I should add that I shouldn’t worry about making it to the Twitter chats I’ve also recently discovered – ‘sup #writestuff – and just write, but tweeting counts as writing, right?)

  1. Thank you so much for sharing my post. I’ve heard that the hardest part of writing is often just writing. There just might be something to that!!

  2. So true! I find that having a smart phone now facilitates writing opportunities: when I am stuck standing in a crowded metro car, I can still write one finger at a time on my phone! It just proves that there are no excuses to not write 😉
