Butt In Chair (BIC)

BIC - 3D Character With Butt In Chair, WritingIn live Chat today, we talked about getting your story down. I borrowed the Nike slogan: Just Do It.

The biggest problem I have as a writer is making the time for BIC. There are so many things competing for my attention. And I don’t have any little ones at home, (if you don’t include the cats and dog.)

Plus, I’m a champion at procrastination. But we won’t go down that rabbit hole.

You can read book after book on how to write a short story, a novel, a best-seller, and so on. And some of those books are darn good and worth every penny you pay. But at some point, if you want to publish a book, you have to sit down and write.

So the way I see it, the best way to get there is to stop making excuses, (and I’m talking to myself here, as much as anyone,) and just do it. Just write. It doesn’t have to be good writing. You can go back and polish it later.

What do you think?
