Beginning – Quick Writing Tip #6

‘Never map it out. Just get into it. Jump in, like going swimming.’

- Margaret Atwood



It’s that time of year when lots of people are beginning new writing projects. The weeks and months stretch ahead of us, bursting with possibilities. Long winter evenings are perfect for writing… 

But all too soon, the minutiae of life crowds in. 

How do you make a start and then keep going? How do you keep writing when there’s no time, when you’re pulled in different directions and you just don’t seem to have the space you crave to string the words together?   

Is there an answer?

The only way I know is to jump in.
Plunge. Write anywhere and anyhow. Launch your little boat on the choppy waters and let it ride each wave of an idea for a while.
