If you’ve ever been in a writing class or with a group of people who are trying to learn to write the same questions come up over and over again.

“But how do you do it?” And “How do I get what’s in my mind out on paper?”

I’ve seen the same people in different groups ask these same questions.

It’s like if the answers don’t suit us, we move on to the next person or group and ask the same thing over and over.

And the same advice is given.

A big problem with this approach to figuring out how to write or do anything is if you never follow the advice, you’ll never progress onto the learning phase of what works and what doesn’t.

Obviously, you have to consider the source of the advice but if you are seeking advice on a specific thing from a credible source and are not, at the very least, trying to implement what they suggest, you are wasting your time and you will never understand.

“The Path is Forged By Doing the Work.”

No one is going to tell you what to do.

Use Google Search Engine to get started. Stop waiting for kindergarten teachers to hold your hand and walk you to the sandpit.

You’re not an adult baby with a diaper full of poop.

Waiting to get told what to do is what the corporate world infects our brains with.

Side hustles are about putting on your big boy/girl pants and getting to work.

It took me a while to figure this out too.

I sat in class after class, group after group, waiting for some magic to be bestowed on me hoping that the words would just come pouring out.

It doesn’t work like that.

You have to sit down and put the pen to the paper or fingers to the keyboard all by yourself and pour them out.
