Ten Second Writing Tip – Write Even if Your Cat Hates You

by Gayle Towell

writeToday’s tip: Write.

This is simultaneously the most obvious and the easiest to forget. If you’re serious about writing, don’t wait to write until everything else is done (it will never be). Don’t wait until the words are ready to come out perfectly (they won’t). Don’t wait until you’re in your ideal creative environment with your ideal creative beverage and your ideal creative cat in your lap on a partly sunny mid-June morning on the coast of South Wales (your cat doesn’t even like you). If you keep finding excuses, you’ll never get anything written. Writing can happen anywhere at any time under any circumstance. You need only have some sort of transcribing device at hand.

Write when you’re in a box,
Sitting with your favorite fox.
Write in your underwear.
Write receiving dental care.
You would not, could not on thin ice?
Infested with your sister’s lice?
Well, then you’re just being lazy and stupid.
