I kick-started earlier this month. I’ve been in a funk for some time, and this sort of lumbering narrative was crystallizing that was positive. I was super-stoked. Gradually it began wane again. Meh.
Some time later this simple maxim came into my world, this reminder:
Who said it? Well, a lot of people probably have said it, and would say it, and it’s pretty straight forward….but in this case it was Lin-Manuel Miranda, in a featurette I was watching from the hit movie, Moana.
It’s a maxim above all others, really. For writers anyway.
Stalled out? Uninspired? No “good” ideas? Took a long break? No worries.
Don’t have the time? Can’t find the time? Sure you can. A few is all you need. A few minutes, it won’t take long. Jot down a few words when you can, when a thought comes to mind that has a little spark.
A little spark. That’s enough. Just a little spark, a little flame, that’s enough. Let it be enough.
