Writing Is A Sport

This post has been seen 4330 times.

write a bookWrite everyday.

Write when the Sun shines and even when the rain falls.

Write when things are going bad and write when things are going good.

Write when you are in the mood and write when you are not in the mood.

Write at weddings and also write at funerals.

Write in the airports, on your palms, on your mirrors, on newspapers, on books, on any surface willing to hold your thoughts.

Write with a pencil, with a marker, a pen, on your phone … just write …

Keep writing. Because your duty as a writer is to out write everyone so you can write faster and write better.

So while others are sleeping … be writing.

while others are having sex …. be writing.

While others are resting … be writing.

Because writing is like a sport! And like sports, if you want to be better than everybody else and be the best in your field you have to out train everyone.

Same thing for writing, if you want to be best in your writing field, then you have to out write everyone!

      Thanks Victor, glad I could be of some help. Remember to add me when the royalties start flooding in!

  3. Thank you so much for the encouragement. The writing doesn’t have to be perfect all the time. It just has to be consistent to be better. This is my lesson today from this post. Thank you again…

    I feel the need to print out this article and stick it somewhere I won’t fail to see it everyday. Do I get a yes go ahead?

  5. First of all I would like to say wonderful blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.

    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are
    usually wasted simply just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Cheers!

    Thanks a lot for this. Usually I write and get to a point where I feel like my words are becoming too scattered or they are too small and I get discouraged and just stop for a long while. This has encouraged me and I think I will write it out and put on my wall so I will see it everyday.

  7. Wow!!!!!!!!!
    amazing…. just amazing
    you might not know this…. what am i saying?…. of course you don’t but you have been my largest source of inspiration for three years now. i just wanted to just compliment you on your frank honesty and implore you to remain awesome. although, i don’t know how you would be able to do that, i hope you will understand my frazzled thoughts more than i do.
