When you feel the urge to write, just say yes. If you have no paper use whatever is at hand, napkin, kleenex, receipt whatever. If you don’t act on the idea, it will vanish into thin air or somewhere, never to be heard from again.
Sometimes you can remember, but you may not have that same aha feeling you had in the first place, so when it strikes: say YES and capture it.
Yes is a word we can say sometimes when we should say no, but when the muse is in your corner, you should say yes.
We have covered a lot of things on writing this month and I hope I helped some.
You should write every chance you get and then edit as much time as you write. Editing is something
Editing is something we all want to say no to, but it needs to be done to put out the best work we can.
You need to say yes to doing things, too. Where you will you get your next idea, if you don’t do things. When someone says, “let’s go for a drive” say yes. You never know where it will lead. You may wind up on top of the mountain or in the coolest valleys seeing great mountain tops and lush, green valleys.
If you never said yes, you might never be married, or a parent or a teacher.
Here is to saying YES.
