Hello everyone.

Hello All

I'm trying to get motivated to get down to the business of writing. I spend all my time reading books about writing, talking about writing, thinking about writing but not actually doing the deed. I hope that being in the company of writers /aspiring writers will inspire me.

There is no beginning or end. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present (unknown)

Money cannot buy happiness but somehow, it's more comfortable to cry in a Mercedes Benz than it is on a bicycle.

Hey Hilde. That's totally why I joined up here, too. Always thinking and talking and reading about writing but never actually DOING it.

I'm reading "Writing Down the Bones" right now and it has an awesome prompt that's paying off for me. Open up a book of poetry and write down an opening line. Then write a story (or poem or essay or whatever) based on that line.

Welcome aboard.

Have you tried reading about something that isn't writing?
Talking about something that isn't writing?
Thinking about something that isn't writing?

That usually works for me.
Never make a decision standing up.
