Writing Challenge Day 36: Inspiration

Just joined us? Jump in where you are. Don't feel you have to catch up, or to go back and start at the beginning. Just work on today's assignment. For more information about the challenge, read this post.


It has often been said, there’s so much to be read,
you never can cram all those words in your head.

So the writer who breeds more words than he needs
is making a chore for the reader who reads.

That’s why my belief is, the briefer the brief is,
the greater the sigh of the reader’s relief is.

And that’s why your books have such power and strength.
You publish with shorth! (Shorth is better than length.)
— Dr. Seuss

If you feel so inspired, write about whatever comes into your head. Or take a day of rest from your writings.

  • Don't judge yourself. Don't edit. Just write. You will edit later. Now it's just about getting it down, for your eyes only.
