Whenever I get stuck, whenever I want to go deeper, whenever I want to go beyond what I think I know, I write without stopping. Timing it is best – creating a small chunk of time that feels achievable no matter how hard the task is appearing. This goes for all writing – letters, poems, assignments (I’m still doing those), character studies, dialogue…whatever is required. I say to myself just write for ten minutes, it doesn’t matter what comes out, it’s only ten minutes of my life. And in that ten minutes I am constantly surprised at what “pours forth” when given the chance.

I have just finished reading this book and found it charming and encouraging.
I really love the last sentence on page 52 "put bells on your dream and jangle it."
