Welcome to another installment of Writing Myths Monday. I hope this Monday morning finds you well. Let’s jump into this week’s myth.
Writing Myth #12 – You have to know what you’re going to say before you start writing.
The physical act of writing helps you figure out what you’re going to write. This myth goes well with I need to be inspired, or my first draft must be perfect. One of the beautiful things about writing is the journey. All the false starts, rewrites and epiphanies. No one sees all the crap you wrote before the final piece but you never would have gotten there without all the other stuff.
So get writing and see what comes out.
Until next time, be happy, stay safe, and good writing vibes into the universe.
