Writing is like Poop!

I know, we don't say poop, but I just did. Hee hee. If you write you know that ideas come in the strangest of places. This one came, well, I bet you can guess where I came up with this one.

I was thinking of my days in the gym and how it was a good thing if you pooped a lot. It is a sign of a healthy system. So the more you poop the better you feel. Are we all feeling a bit uncomfortable?

Now you are wondering what this has to do with writing. Well, as a good story hit-man I can take this out.

Like poop, the more you do the better you get or feel. Writing is like this. Sometimes you write crap, sometimes it is good but you need to keep doing it. Keep your writing mind healthy, keep the flow moving and even if it is a bunch of crap, at least the good writing can move in afterward.

What am I trying to say? Just write, even if it is nothing but crap.



  1. I've been following your blog for a couple of months, and I enjoy reading your well-written informative posts. You're a good writer. I like to say nice things in my comments. This post was funny, and also...short. Nice and short.
    Kudos to your crap. I do understand where you're coming from. Gotta keep the bowels moving or the entire machine shuts down.

  2. I thought it only appropriate that I comment on this one from my own personal porcelain throne...
