Have I mentioned Chuck Wendig?
*blinks* I haven’t?
Well, Chuck is a writer and writing blogger, or is that blogging writer? He blogs about writing and has a huge following, and he’s a writer. His blog recently celebrated its 15th birthday , so if you look there you will see some amazing statistics…like millions of views. <_< !
This year he has, once more, generously shared written inspiration for WriMos on his blog. But,,, he has also written a 30-days-of-inspiration book called 30 Days in the Word Mines.
Day 1 Chuck’s thought was:
YOU CAN DO THIS. Trust me.
Day 2 he says (among other things)
Okay, so that probably wasn’t all that helpful.
Beginning a story is, for me, terrifying.
…Get shut of all of that.
…Club your self doubt to death with a claw hammer.
