Always carry a notebook. Everywhere. Write what you know. Write what you don’t know.
Have a pen with you at all times. Or a pencil. First drafts are supposed to suck.
If you want to write, you’ll find the time. If you’re not enjoying it, write something else.
Keep writing. Finish something. Plot it. Outline it. Write by the seat of your pants. Write *in* your pants.
Simple thing to say. Not always so easy to do. Do you write? How do you find the time? Do you make the time? Do you carry a notebook and pen everywhere, write what you know, plot it, outline it, seat-of-the-pants it?

That’s marvellous. Are you writing now? Thinking about it, plotting it, putting it down on paper? 😉
Great advice! I always carry a small notebook and a pen with me. I do this because when I get an idea I have to write it down right away or I forget it…
I’ve usually got a notebook (or two) in my bag with me, but am terrible at remembering to write stuff down. So many lost ideas!
Liked the post totally 🙂 I carry a pen at all times too, even though I have my tablet with me all the time. Pen is just that precious 🙂
