Five Tips To Make You Write


1. Relax.

Breathe. This is not a the worst thing that could happen. This is your hobby. This is what will contribute to your happiness and productivity at the end of the week. This is the thing you love doing. The thing you love having done. This is your friend. Relax.

2. Freestyle.
Get a piece of paper and jot down ideas. Scrabble. Doodle. Brainstorm. Let the ideas and the words and the phrases tumble out unto the page. Don’t censor, don’t worry. Let the thoughts come and capture as many of them on paper as you can.

3. Read.
Have a collection of great stories, poems and essays that you can read for inspiration. Read them. Read them again

4. Revisit.

Revisit your old work: old poems, stories and essays. Remind yourself that you have done this before. Tell your self you will do this again. Revisit your old work and get inspiration for your new.

5. Start.
Don’t wait for everything to come to you. Don’t wait for the perfect words or phrases. Give yourself permission to start sloppy, start badly, start silly. After all, you won’t stay that way. It is just the start.
