Thoughts about writing – Patrick Rhone @patrickrhone

I loved this when I first read it, put it to one side to consider more deeply, then lost it.

Back in February, Patrick Rhone shared some thoughts about writing, not least the secret of his success:

As someone who has found a way to make a modest amount of money from my writing, I’m often asked by others what the secret is. So, let me get straight to the point as to not waste your time…

Show up. Be yourself. Write. Put it out there for people to read.”

It’s beautifully simple, and painfully hard.

Patrick’s post also contains a link to his e-book, Some Thoughts About Writing – A Minimal Guide.

Update: I’ve just realised that I posted the original without the links :(.  Go here, and drink deeply.
