Picking up the pen…

At the end of the day, that is what writing is about: Just doing it.

The act of picking up pen and paper, putting pen to paper and making your mark, pouring your heart out, throwing your ideas down, scribbling, scratching the surface of the multitude that will come in time.

And the writing does flow. It does come.

But as they say, you must first turn up at the page and put down the first word.

So in the beginning, there is you, and the paper, or the electronic device if you feel so inclined.

Listen to yourself.

Believe in yourself.

Trust yourself.

Now, what will you do for the next five minutes?

Idea:  Free write about your novel idea, short story idea or whatever your ‘big thing’ is.
