Do It Yourself…

February 22, 2010

Oh Creative One! The newspaper ruffled my feathers this weekend with a list of “top ten things to do” if you are a writer by “top ten writers.” Whatever. Each top ten list was different. One even mentioned “writing every morning.” BAH! If I wrote every morning my kids would go unfed and unclothed before dashing off to school not to mention the unsightly mess or the unsafe mood I’d be in without sleep.

Cherished Creative One, remember. Remember, remember, remember. This is your story. Yours alone. It should only look like your story and it should not look exactly like anyone else’s. Explore the tools that have worked for others. Try them on for size. If they help, keep them. If not, put them safely away until you change as an artist and maybe need a new tool to create. Remember, this story is yours and it is a lovely one and it cannot be written by strangers.
