So first, put your pencils and keyboards down.
Double down on staying away from your notebooks. Put them back into the shelves!
Also remember: now is not the time to go and try a writing experiment. Be steadfast. Go on with your day like how you’ve always done it. Don’t seek change.
Okay, I’m done.
Of course, this message can’t be real.
I was actually inspired by James Hart’s piece, “The last thing you’d want in a recession is more business”.
The real message is this. If you want to get better at writing, you’ve simply got to write a lot.
It doesn’t matter if the writing is good or bad. What matters more is that you come back and keep writing day after day.
Eventually there will be some gold.
