Writers Horoscope November 29: Another wise guy chimes in.

Yesterday, you were advised to “just write the damn book.”

Time to tune into Hugh MacLeod’s advice in his book, Ignore Everybody: and 39 Other Keys to Creativity]

“So you’ve got the itch to do something…You don’t know if you’re good or not, but you think you could be. The problem is, even if you are good, you know nothing about this kind of business…”

“That’s…your adult voice, your boring and tedious voice trying to find a way to get the wee crayon voice to shut the hell up. Your wee voice doesn’t want you to sell something. Your wee voice wants you to make something.”

And so, there you are for your hour [or two or three], inside your hermetically sealed fortress of focus—go make something.

Or Joseph Finder and Hugh MacLeod are going to find out about it.
