3 keys to prolific writing

Writers, empower yourself with these three mindsets.

Three basic precepts all writers need to know and remember to be prolific. 

  1. First writings do not need to be good - they just need to be written. You cannot edit a blank page.

  1. Writing well is learned in the same way swimming strongly is. Get in the water/just write, learn some skills, get some feedback and keep swimming/writing.

  1. Golfers golf. They do not have to make it to the PGA to either call themselves golfers or to enjoy the game. Writers write. They do not have to publish a best seller to call themselves writers or to keep writing.

Claim who you are. 
        BE a writer! 
              Just write.
