I have been listening to Word by Word, an audio talk by Anne Lamott and based on her book, Bird by Bird. I have listened to this before and it is interesting the things you notice when you listen again. This time a sentence really stopped me in my tracks;
“Give yourself permission to stare off into space”
Then I checked one of my favorite writing spots this morning and found this permission slip from Ruth. I believe someone is trying to tell me something. Anne Lamott also says, several time;
The circumstances will never be perfect for you to begin writing.
You just need to begin.
