I started listening to Anne Lamott’s book Bird by Bird this morning on the way to work. I forget how funny she is. How realistic she can be. And how damn smart she is. Just write, is her message. Don’t worry about being published. Don’t worry about fame. Don’t worry about the money. Because, she reminds me, those things probably won’t happen. What I need to remember, is to enjoy the process. Enjoy the writing. Because if it ain’t fun it’s not worth it, right? I write to learn. To share. To remember. And this big project that’s haunting me day and night? Well… I’m working on that to understand it. It’s not going to happen over night. I just have to tackle it “bird by bird.” Right, Anne?
