Inspiration For When You Don’t Know Why You’re Writing

Another day, another 5am wake-up.

This Is The Year

A few days ago, I turned 30. And even though I’ve written about age being just a number, reaching this milestone meant something to me. It motivated me in a way that no birthday whizzing by in my 20s did. 29 just didn’t seem to have the same amount of reflective power as 30.

One of my favourite writers, Jeff Goins, has stressed the importance of practicing in public (a.k.a. posting your work and sharing it with the world) since I first started reading him a few years ago.

Practice For Two Years (At Least!)

Goins also wrote a popular blog post on the subject, titled, “Why You Should Practice Every Day for Two Years Before You Expect to Succeed.” I read that post a couple of years ago, and I think it helped mentally prepare me for what’s to come.

Seth Godin has said that if it scares you, it might be a good thing to try.
