on writing twelve minutes a day

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.

Just write.

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.
