Do it everyday…

Posted: November 26, 2013 in Uncategorized

Borrowed from Austin Kleon’s tumblr page:

“You get up and, first thing in the morning, you do your 500 words. Do it every day and you’ve got a book in eight or nine months.”
— Vaclav Smil, on how he’s published 30 books (3 of them in the last year)

***
This is on the same level as “shipping” we just need to shut up and do it.

Talking about it isn’t doing it.

I’ve set out to cartoon everyday. Sometimes I post several things a day, and ultimately I want to write my book. This quote is motivation enough to do that. Even 300 words a day (like Anne Lamott has written about in her book “Bird By Bird”) will add up.

It can be done and I am doing it.
