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?)
