If You Have No Story To Tell Borrow One

If you have no particular story to tell, then borrow one from someone else. This has worked pretty well for Shakespeare and pretty much every other great writer. The bible is good for plots, as are myths, fairy tales, legends, ballads, pop songs, and crappy movies that didn’t quite work (rewrite them so they do).

Guard Your Writing Time Like Smaug Guards His Gold

Don’t let dumb distractions get in the way of your dreams. If you can’t find the time to write, you’re probably not a writer. Writers write. That’s what we do. If you are intent on making a career of storytelling and putting down words for others to read, set aside time to write and guard those precious minutes like fucking Smaug sitting on top of his piles of gold.
