Do you often feel the urge to write but don’t know what to write about?
At first this annoyed me and I often hung my head and sighed.
‘I want to write but I have nothing to say,’ I thought. ‘I’m no proper writer.’
I stared at many blank pages.
And they stared at me.
And we became acquaintances.
One day I met a page that was whiter than the others.
I wanted to make friends with her.
So I picked up the pen and wrote something on her.
And it made me feel good.
And from then on I kept writing something new everyday.
And I am glad I did, for it instilled in me the habit of writing daily.
To become a good writer it’s important to write every time you feel the ‘literary urge.’
It doesn’t matter what you write.
But it’s important that you do it.
In those scribblings you will discover more about yourself than in the mirror,
And it will soothe you,
And make you write more and write better,
And before you know it you’ve written a book.
