Your Secret Writing Self

Page After Page by Heather Sellers

To develop your secret writing self:

  1. Do exercises for writers instead of just reading them.
  2. Stop talking about your writing, how hard it is, what you are doing, and your dreams.  Instead, write.
  3. Make a space in your life—a physical box house—where no one can enter.  It can be as simple as a notebook you carry around, a special pen, a time of day.
  4. Practice being quiet.  Let other people talk.  Listen, like you did when you were a kid, and you openly stared and absorbed everything.  Be quie.  Leave some room in yourself for words to reverberate.
