Writing: a game of two parts

Happy new year!

I’m going back to basics for the first post of 2012.

Whenever you’ve got to write something you’re looking at two interlinked activities:

Thinking

Putting it into words

All too often we skimp on the first part. We think we can just sit down at a keyboard and words will flow magically from our fingertips. I wish!

It’s only when we’ve taken time to engage the brain long enough to decide what we’re trying to say that we can even begin to think about how to say it.

I won’t say it’s my new year’s resolution because I stopped making those years ago, but I will try to keep it in mind.

How about you?
