Weekend Writing

Welcome to the weekend.  While it's a good time to "break" from your weekday routine, it's also a good time to either start or continue a writing project, especially if you think you might have the next great novel in you.  

Remember, you don’t have to start with a whole novel.  In fact, you just need to write a few words; then a few sentences; and then a few paragraphs.  It's sort-of like taking that proverbial "thousand mile trip."  To get there, you have to take the first step.  As prize-winning writer William Faulkner once said:  "Eventually, if you’ve started out with the right few words, you’re going to get yourself a short story, and like a couple of rabbits put together in a hutch, you kind of know where that might lead – yep, into a full-blown novel.  But, first, you’ve got to write down a few words.

 If a story is in you, it has to come out.”   Happy writing.
