Re: Age, Creativity and the Courage to Write
by Jack
Hi
You didn't say how old you are. I am in my mid-sixties. When I was young, I picked up new technologies with no effort. Now I have to work to pick one up. I feel my brain wants to tell me "disk full."
Think of running. You have to run on a regular basis or your body rebels. As you get older, running becomes more difficult.
Now think of writing. You have to write on a regular basis or your brain rebels.
Set a goal, say 1000 words a day, every day. At first, it doesn't matter what you write, just write. Write about the soup can talking to the beans. Or a girl dancing at Mardi-Gra. Subjects and quality don't matter. One thousand words a day matter. After two weeks of this, you will find your creativity.
