Have you ever talked with a six year old about writing? You would be astounded at the advice these kids can give you in a short amount of time. Most of the time, they teach me.
When I asked them a simple question, what do you know that good writers do? Here are their answers:
* Write, write, write. (My 86 year old father-in-law says so too.)
* think, think, think
* A writer’s work is never done.
* Never stop
AND MY ALL TIME FAVORITE:
* “Listen to the master.” When he first said it, he was looking at me. And then I reframed it and said, “Who is the master of your writing?” “And then he said with a resounding enthusiasm, “I AM!” So I refined it even more, “Listen to that still small voice.”
If you ever need advice on writing or anything in life, ask a six year old. They’re honest, and they haven’t been away from the true source for too long.
Have a happy Sunday, and may you write, write, write and heal, heal, heal. ~Namaste.
