Starting the writing habit

Where does one start? What can I tell you? I just don’t know.

I think that is the mystery of writing. That we just don’t know.  Until we sit down at the keyboard or pull the cap off the pen. When we face the empty page, we just don’t have a clue.  And then “Will it be any good?” How many times have you asked that question?  I know I have.  I think it every day.

Back in 1994, I started to read anything I could find to do with writing. I made copious notes. That’s what I’m going to share here: but only the techniques that work for me.

So what I intend to write regular posts about writing techniques.  Short and pithy. Nothing more than a hundred words long. That’s the ambition.
