Best Writing Advice

Six weeks until Blue Ridge Mountain Christian Writers Conference, and my alarm sounded at 4:00 A.M . Immediately, I hit the snooze button, just a few minutes longer, I promised myself–a natural reaction to my daily routine. But this morning, something unnatural altered my ritual of alarm and snooze and I jumped out of bed.

A statement, the best piece of writing advice, stuck as a high note in my mind, singing the same one liner of a song . . .

Nothing Magical happens until we write.

It’s been two weeks since I began a new routine, getting up hours before my family stirs in the bed, two weeks of hitting the snooze button for an extra ten minutes. Truth is, I attended BRMCWC for the first time last year, my very first writers conference. Like many first timers, I didn’t quite know what to expect, all I knew for sure, my personal expectations were high–very high.

And it happened, just like that, and was over. I spent the last year reading and rereading my notes. Great inspiration flew from my handwritten scribbles. The very best writing advice given, over and over, at the conference.

Sit down and write.

Nothing magical happens unless we do the work.
