Bruce Foot is an Australian author and illustrator who has spent most his life making stuff up (in a good way).

For many years Bruce wrote thousands of words as a freelance copywriter. Mostly blurbs and website content, and mostly about food - which made him very hungry.

Now, he follows his true hunger: writing and illustrating stories.

'I test out all my stories on my kids,' says Bruce. 'They are my best critics. Sometimes I even show our dog Louie, but he just chews on the pages.'

I believe It's the mind's ability to convince us that we have nothing left in the tank. For good or bad, our mind blocks our view of the creative horizon; protecting us from more hard work, more writing, more editing; shielding us from disappointment. What if everyone hates it, or laughs at my efforts? All those self-doubts.
The best way to beat the block is to hit it with something hard. Hit it with persistence! Write with guts. Sit down and write. Write anything. Get past the mud-sodden bog by moving forward until you hit dry land. (less)

Every word, every sentence you string together doesn't need to be perfect the first time you create it. I get the ideas and the words onto page (notepad, scraps of paper, smart phone notes, computer, whatever) without concerning myself too much with spelling, punctuation etc. It's a stream of thought without the speed humps. Get it down, keep moving forward, worry about the editing when it's time to edit. (less)
