Coast a Little

It you are by a large body of water, or can fill your bathtub without feeling guilty, then dip your toes in and feel the pull of just being.

In other words: coast a little. Over-thinking the writing can lead to not writing. Then it becomes a vicious cycle of guilt, doubt and no answer to self-recrimination.

Instead, when you find yourself at this point, just stop, drop and watch something funny or body surf if you can.

We bring the most to our writing practice when we can smile coming back to it.
