Get on with it

Writing tipsEloquent writing rarely emerges fully formed on the page. My recommendation is to write often, daily if possible, and not to be too self-critical about early versions. Writing may be hard mental work but the graft and the craft need to be enjoyed too. Get on with it. If the first draft is a poor attempt you can always improve it. And if it reads well, enjoy the gift and continue. When you have a more polished version, it helps to seek the constructive feedback of trusted advisers.
