writing quotes Jack Kerouac bring the story into focus

Do you ever feel like you have nothing to write about and wonder how you’re going to fill the blank space? Then you sit down and begin, the words don’t stop flowing?

We often have stories percolating in our mind without even being aware of them. They might seem like mirages, vague impressions.

We usually wait for the image to sharpen before we begin writing. This can cause us to stall on an idea and lose the compulsion to write it altogether.

We don’t have to wait to we have every detail of a book mapped out before we decide to write it. Sometimes the only way to bring a story into focus is to get it out so we can read it back to ourselves.

So take that leap of faith. Sit down and struggle to sketch the flow that already exists intact in mind.

Happy Writing,
