Many of life’s important truths are contradictory.
We normally think of contradictions as illogical and therefore useless. But if we prod a bit deeper, we find real wisdom below the surface.
For example, if we hate a certain trait in others, to the point of loathing it, we are in fact insecure and are avoiding the same trait in ourselves.
Write the first draft of your story in as short a time as possible. If you’re writing a short story, try to write it in one sitting. If you’re writing a novel, try to write it in one season (three months).
Don’t worry too much about plotting or outlining beforehand. You can do that once you know you have a story to tell in the first place. Your first draft is a discovery process. You are like an archeologist digging an ancient city out of the clay. You might have a few clues about where your city is buried beforehand, but you don’t know what it will look like until it’s unearthed.
