Worrying about not having any ideas / not knowing what to write? I’ll let you in on a little secret: You’re in a better position than those who’ve already mapped-out their idea with military precision.

Why? Because literally anything can happen, and as a result of writing so quickly, anything WILL happen — and you’ll often be shocked and pleased with the results.

Pick the first thing that comes into your head (“First Thought, Best Thought” as Kerouac said) and just go with it until you hit a wall, then go with something else — you’ll find your own groove eventually.

And to those who’ve already planned their idea out to the letter — don’t worry, you’ll be fine too.

Just be willing to chuck the plan out of the window when something interesting comes up.

Don’t get too bogged down looking at your plan instead of where your writing is actually going, or else you’ll be like a tourist driving around with the map stuck to the windowscreen.

Don’t be afraid to take a few wrong turns. You can always go back and pretend that you meant to take the scenic route all along.
