Natalie Goldberg’s priceless advice to writers is something all of us can use. Her advice was, “Keep your hands moving.” That’s it! The last thing and the only thing you need to remember. Doing things really isn’t the problem, thinking about doing things is the only problem. It’s always worse in the mind than it is in the real world. All those things we hate doing.

“There, that wasn’t so bad, was it?” How many times have our parents, teachers or our friends said those words to us? Hundreds. Thousands. Don’t dread anything any more. Just jump in and do it. If you’re stuck with what you’re writing, working on, etc., just keep your hands moving. You are the author of your life. Keep your hands moving.
