3 Rules of Writing and Life

When it comes to writing, there’s a lot that can apply to non-writers. Everything involved in the world of writing can be a metaphor for life.

I don’t feel particularly wordy today. So, you can apply most of the metaphors.

 

ONE

Write down or record ideas as soon as they pop up. No matter how intriguing, mysterious, seducing, grandiose, simple, or vibrant they are, eventually, you will forget.

Intense emotions can easily be activated by recorded memories. They’re also easily forgotten. Time wears on everything, including the most important of memories.

If you’re a writer? WRITE YOUR BLOODY IDEA DOWN AS SOON AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE. Or it will run away. Immediately. And ideas sprint like The Flash on crank.

 

TWO

Anything that hasn’t destroyed you – even if it has destroyed you! – you can use it. It is all for you and your writing’s betterment.

Or if you’re not a writer, your sentence looks like this:

Anything that hasn’t destroyed you – even if it has destroyed you! – you can use it. It is all for your betterment.

 

THREE 

Passion. If you don’t love it, it has no point.

(except the dentist….seriously, no one likes it, but go!)
