Writing - Butt In Chair

There is no secret to writing. You put your butt in a chair and put the words on the page. If you hear of anything else as being important, it's not true. You write by putting words on the page. That was just made clear to me in an interview of best selling author CJ Lyons. Asked if there is anything she does to before she starts writing she stated:

"Putting my butt in the chair — any chair!"

That's the key to writing (and any creative endeavor). Stop everything and get started. If you want to be a composer, put your butt in a chair and write music. If you want to be a painter, put your butt in chair (or stool) and paint (draw, sculpt, etc…). If you want to be a musician, put your butt in a chair and practice. It is all the same. So go, put your butt in a chair and get started.
