Dare To Be Different
What have I learned about being a writer and the writer’s work? Writers write every day. Not just on the weekends. Not just when they feel like it. But every day. The more I write, the more confident I become. The more engaged I am in my writing and the world I build around me as a writer.
You decide for yourself what is appropriate for you as a writer and what is not. Here are some of the things I challenge you and myself to do:
- When everyone else is sitting around relaxing on the holidays and not writing… write.
- When everyone else gives up… keep writing.
- When everyone else procrastinates… write even more.
- When everyone else makes excuses as to why they can’t write or won’t write… write some more.
Do not worry about what everyone else is doing or has done. Do what works best for you. Don’t be afraid to change what doesn’t work. Don’t be afraid to be creative and think outside the box. You are a writer. We are artists. If we can’t break the rules and be creative…daring to be extraordinary…who can?
So, be different.
Rise above the ordinary.
Often the difference between ordinary and extraordinary is being persistent.
Raise your own bar.
Make your own dares and follow through…you just might surprise yourself…and the people around you.
