On Inspiration

How do you approach writing?

Are you hesitating so much that you’re not connecting the pen with the page at all?  Are you throwing a lot of judgement at those first attempts?

Do you wait for inspiration? Or do you chip away at it?

Give yourself a break.  This should be fun.  Just go ahead and have a go.  Try that exercise I suggest in the video – write for five-minutes non-stop every day.  You never have to share what you write (unless you want to).  Think of it as a warm up.  After a while you’ll find that you have lots of ideas.

Let me know what you think and how you get on in the comments.
