When an idea strikes, it begins to take shape the moment we set pen to paper. From there it’s a messy process, often involving scribbled marks and sometimes doodles. Editing marks, maybe. Signs of frustration, undoubtedly. But that’s okay.
The words won’t fall together perfectly the first time. In fact, they may still show resistance after multiple rewrites. But that’s okay.
Get those words onto paper. Allow them to dance in mud and fight for order. Real life is never cut-and-dry. There are mistakes and moments when we fall down.
The point is to write despite all the cards stacked against you. Don’t quit for fear of failure. Even the most successful craftsmen were failures at some point. They just didn’t quit.
Live. Love. Write.
