I was reading an article by a professional organizer today and it was fun to see how much of her advice applied to writing. Here are three paraphrased gems:
1. Don’t begin by thinking about the entire task in front of you because you might feel overwhelmed. Instead, begin by thinking only of what you’ll tackle that day.
2. Don’t wait for motivation to hit or you might never get started. Action many times precedes motivation.
3. Knowing when to become attached and when to let go is the difference between cluttered and tidy.
After rereading, I think these three apply to MANY things in life :).
