“No one can write a best seller by trying to. He must write with complete sincerity; the clichés that make you laugh, the hackneyed characters, the well-worn situations, the commonplace story that excites your derision, seem neither hackneyed, well worn nor commonplace to him.”
~W. Somerset Maugham
“Like most, maybe all writers,
I learned to write by writing and,
by example, from books.”
~ Francine Prose
We all tend to gravitate to what we know and end up staying in our comfort zones. We stay with what we know because sometimes the fear of the unknown is greater than the fear of being stuck. What area of your life do you feel you need to make a change? What area of your life feels stagnant? What can you do to change it? What will you have to do to break out of your comfort zone? What are the pros and cons of doing so?
Reflect and write!
