Reason # 3 Why Folks Don’t Write.
There are many reasons folks don’t write. Lack of talent isn’t one of them.
Funny thing about imagination is the tricks it plays; which I guess, if you were an imagination, you’d find this jolly good fun. One of its tricks is the mental message “I have nothing to say, nothing to write about.”
Whoa. Flip that notion to reveal truth. You have TOO MUCH to say. LOGJAM!
A logjam is just a stall. That’s all. When it happens, embrace it or erase it.
There are times not to write. When you have too much to say, sometimes it’s best to spare audiences your mishmash and wait awhile. Embrace the lull. That’s okay.
Or, erase the stall with humble little jumpstarts. Try the following three sentences:
1. I think I know……
2. I want to know……
3. I know I know…….
These aren’t fancy or even interesting prompts…but logjams loosened with finesse work best.
