Do Something

A quick but meaningful snippet from Chuck Wendig's The Kick-Ass Writer that I have been pondering:

"Go Forth and Do Shit...Embrace authenticity. Writers do not gain a sense of authenticity by sitting at the computer all day popping out word-babies. Have something to write about. To do that, you must go out. Into the world..."

I have a tendency to nest. I am comfortable with my laptop, spitting out or reading other people's word-babies. I have my reasons, but whatever they are, the fact remains that experiences make up the bricks from which we build our written worlds.

Pondering can only get you so far. Time to go into the world and do some things.

Okay, maybe not this...
