Write Every Day!
Have you ever seen the movie Groundhog Day ? I loved it! If you have seen it I bet you were like me and wondered just what you could do if you had the chance to relive the same day over and over again.
I might actually be able to bring some organization to my life! Oh, I know, I could plan on starting my diet---tomorrow. Now wouldn’t that be cool! All the chocolate glazed doughnuts I could eat today. Or I could write a novel---at least the perfect opening.
Interesting. If I wrote every day how much better a writer would I be in...say, a year? How much more would I have learned?
In Groundhog Day Bill Murray decided he wanted to learn how to play the piano. In the beginning, he was so awful. His fingers stumbled across the keys. I cringed right along with his instructor. But you know what? He went back every day, and he improved.
When I first joined RWA and our local chapter, we had visiting authors who spoke to our group. They spoke on varied topics but the one thing they all said was to write every day. It’s like anything else...the more you do it, the better you get.
