Dark Clouds

I HAVE A FEW personal rules, or guidelines, that I try to keep in mind when writing. Such as,

• There is nothing that can’t be written about. Which means that inspiration must be everywhere.

If you are struggling to think of something to write about, it can only be because you haven’t opened yourself to the inspiration that is around you.

• Never set out to write an article. Set out only to write a phrase or a sentence. The rest will write itself as ideas and thoughts connect with one another. Or it won’t. In which case, don’t set out to write a different text. Just write a new phrase or sentence.

• A text is never finished. You just stop working on it. Stop working on a text before you start making changes just for the sake of it. Never be satisfied. At best, be content.
