How deeply do you think?
Great ideas come from time spent thinking.
One of the best ways to think is to write.
Writing is like mining for ideas.
But with less black lung disease.
And more Carpal tunnel syndrome.
Every line you write digs deeper into a vein of thought.
The more you write, the digger you deep.
The digger you deep, the more you discover.
If you force yourself to sit down and write for an hour or 2 or 3 you will discover new thoughts and ideas that you had never considered before.
The pencil is your pick.
The pen is your shovel.
The keyboard is your drill.
Write to find new ideas.
The more you write the more you will reach.
There are deeply buried gems waiting for you to discover.
But the only way to unearth them is with your writing utensils.
Scratch with each stroke.
Tap and type and claw toward those ideas.
Don’t stop short.
Get to the gold.
Discover the diamonds.
Mine for the motherlode.
The clues on the surface give you a starting point.
But the treasure is always deep below the surface.
Well below the obvious.
So write and find it.
Write fast and furiously. (Like Vin Diesel)
Write slow and smart.
Get to the spot where each word feels hard.
Go as deep
