Have you ever felt worse about yourself after you’ve written? Even if it’s terrible? My guess is your answer is no. When you’ve felt worse is when you know you should be writing…and you don’t – there’s the pain.
It’s the same as the gym, you suck it up and go, after that you feel better. Or, you make up a reason not to go and live with the short term pain of regret.
To finish the headline above:
“Writing is fun, it’s the not writing, the staring at the screen, procrastinating and trying to make yourself start that’s miserable.”
Now, just go write a few sentences and see where that takes you.
