Exercise the writing muscle every day, even if it is only a letter, notes, a title list, a character sketch, a journal entry. Writers are like dancers, like athletes. Without that exercise, the muscles seize up.
― Jane Yolen
Let’s make every day a writing muscle-building day.
If I waited for perfection, I would never write a word. — Margaret Atwood
