Don’t Think. Just Write

 Years ago, I knew I wanted to write, so I did. I wrote, submitted my work to magazines and earned money.

Next, I wanted to have my own website, so I did a web design course and set up my first site.

I also wanted to write a book and get it published so I wrote it and published it while stumbling through the whole process and learning as I went along.

It was during this time that I came across an online “Guru” called Mike Littman and his mantra was “You don’t have to get it right. You just have to get it going.”

I loved that, so it’s what I always did. It’s also how I always write. I just keep going and write in the ‘flow’. No editing. Just writing.

Sometimes as I write I think I’m going wrong, but I don’t stop. I just keep writing.

And in the end it’s usually OK and I can fix things in the edit.

What’s always worked for me is not to overthink things. I simply get things started and make changes as I go along.

I never overthink my writing either.

I create an outline and write from there.

If you want to achieve more, don’t get it right, just get it going.

You won’t regret it.
