Reminder: Writing Rules

There are no rules when it comes to your writing. There are no rules when it comes to your creativity.

If you’ve joined me at a writing sprint you know that I say “There are no rules!” often and emphatically.

What do I mean when I say that? Quite literally, I mean, there are no rules when it comes to writing or telling your story.

I have to say it to myself, when my doubts keep me from writing a scene, and I’ll say it over and over again to encourage you to put any fears aside and just write. Write weirdly, write quickly, write slowly. Write how you need to. 

I love this phrase so much I even designed a notebook with it in mind (my first product, and a goal for my first year of business!).  If you want your own, you can purchase one here.

So, today’s reminder: there are no rules. You get to make the rules. 

So find your voice, find your flow, and let yourself write freely. 

Remember — it doesn’t have to be good. That’s for the second draft 🙂 or third or fourth…
