The practice and habit of writing
not only drain the mind
but supply it too.
—William Strunk, Jr. and E.B. White
Write. Start writing today. Start writing right now. Don’t write it right, just write it—and then make it right later. Give yourself the mental freedom to enjoy the process, because the process of writing is a long one. Be wary of “writing rules” and advice. Do it your way.
Start telling the stories that only you can tell, because there’ll always be better writers than you and there’ll always be smarter writers than you. There will always be people who are much better at doing this or doing that—but you are the only you.
Learning to write is learning to think.
You don’t know anything clearly unless you can state it in writing.
—S. I. Hayakawa
