a note to myself

Dear Self,

I can't help but notice you seem to struggle with writing every single day. Sometimes you just have to force yourself to sit down and write. The inspiration won't always come and it just may not be a "good writing day". But it doesn't matter. The only way you'll become an author is if you write. Write. Write. Write.

I've found that once you sit down and actually try, you might find that ideas will start popping into your head, and that "bad writing day" will disappear.

Oh! But the excuses are endless. It's so pretty outside, you say. Oh, look, you're right. Go write outside, then. I just don't feel like it. And your point is? My story is just not turning out the way I wanted it to. Then go fix it.

Even when you are trying to write, things can be a distraction. Just keep on swimming, and stop being like Doug.

So go grab your iced coffee, gather your notes, and GO WRITE.
