I want you to know that you have so many stories. You have so many stories on the inside of you. I want you to be brave enough to look for them. This week, during the second week of Back To Writing Month, I want you to find what is brewing in your mind and go after it.
I want you to seek it out.
Don’t shy from it.
Get at the story. Chase it. Don’t let it get away this time.
Writers use all kinds of tools to get the work of writing done. One of the most overlooked tools is what is a freely installed app on your phone.
This feature allows you the unique ability to record your idea, with a time and date stamp. It’s your own ‘poor man’ copyright. Take advantage of this feature. It’s not as sexy as pen and paper, I know. There is a sensual nature to that, without a doubt. But if preserving the story is the goal, keeping the idea in tact the mission (read: especially, if pen and paper aren’t available!) record it.
It’ll save your sanity.
And maybe keep you from cursing your future self for not recording the idea at first unction.
