a-writer  This thought is great for anyone aching to be a writer. What thought can you come up with about being a writer? Now give that thought to a character and write a one-page piece on it. Be wild and creative. Give the character a physical quirk like a limp, crooked smile, bent ear. Put the character in a unique setting and have them eat something delightful, or not. Let your imagination run wild. Put it all on the page and don’t stop to critique yourself or edit. Just get it out. Editing comes later, sometimes a long time later.

Keep the pen moving,
