PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE

I took part in one of the Loft Literary Center’s workshops a few weeks ago during which I heard a bit of advice that works for me more than any writer’s blocks prompts ever could: Think of your daily writing in the same way a musician or a sports pro thinks of daily music or batting practice.

Put in that vein, I found that I no longer felt that every sentence had to be potential Pulitzer Prize material. And surprise surprise…through daily writing I’m starting to see some improvement! By golly, if daily practice isn’t beneath Yo-Yo Ma, who am I to sneer at its value?
