The truth is I never can’t write. I don’t want to write. I resist writing. I come up with a thousand and one other things I think are more important for me to finish than writing - even though the truth is for anyone like myself who calls themselves a writer first - before anything else - there is nothing more important than writing. It’s the fuel that drives the engine for everything else.
Which is pretty much why I wasn’t getting much writing done.
That helped to get the wheels turning - but I was still spending more time with the learning modules than my keyboard.
I read a book about writing - without a doubt one of the best books I’ve read on writing.
And I’ve read a lot of books on writing.
Ironically, it’s not just for writers like me who are writers before everything else. It’s for everybody. Because - as it is so aptly titled, Everybody Writes - Your Go-To Guide to Creating Ridiculously Good Content.
It helped me to jumpstart my writing again and remember a few of the things I seemed to have forgotten that had gotten me to that can’t write place.
Everybody Writes has earned its official spot on my recommended reading list - not quite as coveted as The New York Times - but a spot nonetheless !
