I talked about The Big Idea earlier this week. Now I wanna talk about what it takes to tackle The Big Idea.
How do writers get them? Why are they so easy to find for some and super tough for others?
*shrugs* Don't ask me.
But I recently read a book in which a character says this: "Go all out, or don't go at all."
Writers. Athletes. Scientists. Everyone has goals, small or big, that they're dying to achieve. 2k a day. A Super Bowl championship ring. The cure for cancer. Doesn't matter what it is, only that it drives us forward.
In a way, I don't think people have balls until they want something. Sure, some leap before they look, but most gather courage after identifying what it is that fulfills them. And I invite you to do the same.
Go all out. Your future will thank you for it. *fist pump*
Now back to that WIP...
