Earlier today I sat in the dentist’s chair waiting for him to check my teeth. In a desperate attempt to compose a post today, I began flipping through an old notebook for ideas. Alas, none occurred to me before the dentist joined me for the examination.
However, even he recognized a principle that has become like a mantra to me: just start writing and something will come of it.
Or better or more succinctly yet, I tell myself: Write. Right?
Not only does this apply to this post but any sort of creative writing in which I endeavor. Putting fingers to the keyboard or pen to paper are the only ways to get anything down at all. Otherwise, it’s like trying to catch fish without putting a line in the water.
So, whatever your creative goal today, make that initial attempt and get yourself in the groove.
