Write like no one’s reading
…and that includes you.
Set the timer for 10 minutes, and just write!
Write, “I don’t know what to write, so I’m writing.”
Write with reckless abandon!
Write about your breakfast.
Write about your first thought. Last night’s dream. Your research question.
Write about your first day, when they call you “DOCTOR.”
Then write some more.
At the end of ten minutes, file it.
Now…. go get coffee. You can edit it later.
