How Do I Get Started Writing? – “Inspiration Is For Suckers”

How Do I Get Started Writing? – “Inspiration Is For Suckers”

Welcome to episode 7 of Write Club! 

To help us this week we have a new co-host Ann Marie, longtime friend and fellow troublemaker of the Ouishare Universe.

In this episode, we dive into how to get unstuck with your writing and keep going. The bad news is you need to get yourself going and in this episode, the Write Club crew give you some rock solid tips to one of our most popular questions from you, ‘how do I get started writing?’

“Inspiration is for suckers” – a lot of people mistake motivation for the initial inspiration because they just don’t know where to start.

We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment. Jim Rohn.

QUESTIONS ANSWERED IN THIS EPISODE

– How do I prioritise writing in the midst of competing deadlines & “emergencies”?
