I’m a big fan of my brain. Honestly, there’s very little I’d be able to do without it. I’d be struggling to get up in the morning. I’d have great difficulty tying my shoelaces. I suspect many more significant tasks, such as eating and breathing, would be much more challenging without the contribution of my brain.
In my general perusal of the online writing world, I’ve seen a few posts and articles relating to the issue of how to get started as a writer.
It’s a perennial question. One of the biggies when it comes to writing. Just how do you get started? What is the key to commencing a major piece of writing? How do you go from a blank page to something that may eventually turn into a novel?
I suppose we’re all travellers in some way. We’re all on a journey through life. The starting point was the moment of our birth and the end point is – well I’m not sure I want to talk about that now.
As we continue on that journey, we all have the baggage we carry along with us. We pick it up as we go – the various negative events and influences that mould and shape us, affecting and inhibiting our attitudes and approaches to life. At the start, there isn’t too much – after all, how much weight is a baby supposed to carry. But as we get moving, we all start to accumulate.
