Get to Work

I was sick for a few days, and each member of my immediate family was sick either before or after me, then I had a little surgery, and then… I stopped writing on this web site. Well, it’s been a couple of weeks anyway, which for me is a huge amount of time.

And now… what to write about?

Getting back to the blinking cursor on a white page reminded me of some invaluable advice that an editor once gave me.

In short, he pointed out that if I write something, then he can edit it. If I don’t, then he can’t.

The way to get started with a project (or a paragraph, or a sentence), is to get something on paper, good or bad. Once there’s something to work with, then we can make changes.

This goes for just about everything that I ever need to do.

This, the shortest Save the Semicolon blog post ever, is brought to you using the Write SOMEthing method of getting back on the horse.
