The Easiest Solution

When starting out on a new writing project, especially one that has no specific structure or driving idea, it's normal to feel uncertain. Most of what you put on the page will feel like shit and its always hard to know when you actually write something good.

The best solution to this problem is to keep showing up at the page, day in and day out, and writing your daily quota. The trouble about this kind of advice is that it sucks. It's common and obvious and seems really lazy. Yet, there are no easy solutions to becoming a writer—well, except for the easy, obvious one...doing the work.
