Y4 – Day 191 – Suggest

I have suggestions for aspiring writers I need to follow myself.

Like commitment to a schedule every day. Maybe a word, page or time limit. I could squeeze in two hours everyday. I could have a one page or 250 word count. Maybe ten minute prompts to warm me up for the120 minutes of uninterrupted, non-distracted appointment I just made with my creative, disciplined self.

Perhaps a ritual before attempting to put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard. Burn incense, utter a mantra, pray for ideas, take a 5 minute brisk walk or all of the above are just a few suggestions.

You know suggestions are just a gentle form of commands, right? Listen to self.
