A few years ago, I took a writing class at the San Francisco Writer’s Salon. It was an interesting class. Mainly because no one was required to show up. Our only obligation was to write twelve minutes a day, and email what we’d written to another person in the class. The idea was to just get going. Forget about all those reasons why we weren’t writing.
It was a small commitment and after nearly every installment, I realized that I didn’t want to stop writing when the buzzer went off. I had more to say. Ideas that needed to be realized.
So, I kept writing.
Maybe you should try it, too. Just twelve minutes.
