Writing Like a Turtle

This is what I tell my writing students...

Every writer knows, that to make progress you have to take risks. To tell the truth and really leave it all on the page, you will feel vulnerable, like the turtle sticking it’s neck out.

Take risks.

But that’s the only way you’re going to get anywhere. Inch by inch. Little by little. Keep moving forward and you’ll get there. Your readers want truth and risk and all those messy bits of life on the page.

Happy Sunday to my collegereadycoach.com tribe.
