I, like many others, have read who knows now many writing books and read numerous writing blogs and twitter posts. Hey, I’ve even written one or two myself.
But there is one thing common to most of these efforts which I think is the essence of it all. Maybe presumptious of me to say, but say it I will anyway.
That’s all there is to it. Writers write. We are writers because we write stuff, we produce, we do.
I’ve added another 1,965 words tonight to my first Sci-Fi novel. That’s all new stuff, produced by the simple act of sitting in a chair and writing. No other rule, guidance, suggestion is needed.
Reworking, editing, layout, sending it out or publishing as an ebook, all that comes later.
Don’t worry about any of that, just write. You’ll feel better for it. I feel great.
