Best Writing Advice

Some of the best advice I ever got about writing was so simple it went right over my head at first. The axiom? Just write. Yep. Just do it. Put something down every day. Now it took me along time to realize that that particular piece of logic was completely straightforward. It doesn’t say write well, or good, or even comprehensible. It doesn’t say write something nice, or uplifting, or dirty, or rotten. Just, write.

And it’s the one thing that I believe helps more than anything else. To just write. Write something every day, whether anyone else ever see it or not.

There’s something magical about putting an idea down in writing. I’m not sure what it is, something just, happens. You see it there, you read it over and over, and you just get it somehow, that feeling of something above accomplishment. I don’t know that there’s a word for it, if there is I haven’t found it yet.

There’s a nice, uplifting article here that elaborates a little more on writing, but it reminded me of the first time I read that best little nugget of information. Write something, every day.

One thought on “Best Writing Advice

  1. “Just write” definitely is the best advice. Really simple, yet sometimes difficult in practise, as we don’t always want to start doing something that seems quite intimidating – like finishing a novel. You don’t have to finish a novel; you just need to write anything, and the ideas will come.
