Write or Die!

November 9th, 2010 No comments

I ran across the site Write or Die the other day, and figured I’d give it a try.  It is pretty amazing what can happen when you light a fire under you own toes.  It’s a simple yet effective “stay focused” tool for writing.

There is a time to write aggressively, to generate quantity.   No, it’s not a substitute for planning, or for deliberate, thoughtful editing, but a flat out writing sprint can generate lots of good stuff that can be pared properly later.

I know you can’t take these thoughts with you, but thanks – thanks for building a massive community of running friends, for helping so many of us in so many ways, and helping us make dreams come true.

You left us way, way too soon.

Farewell, Mike.
