Chill Out

Okay, this might be driven a little by the Obsessive Introversion I'm hitting right now, but I have to say it...chill out.

Most of the time I don't mind the overly serious nature some writers take on their business, craft, art, or whatever other title they're giving their writing. I am usually impressed by those writers who delve into the framework of every friggin' aspect of the writing world...but geez.

Chill out.

The more you talk about writing, the more you talk about talking about writing, and the more you talk about those others who are talking about talking about writing (see the trend growing here?)...the less you're actually writing.

Just write. Write however you like to write. Research how you like to research. Friggin' spell it alright or all right...just string sentences together until you're done. If you don't have an idea...write incoherent thoughts until it starts to make sense.

Phew! My rants draining and I'm feeling much better, thank you.

That is all. Good writing all! (Writing, not talking about writing.)
