Start in order to get over the hump of starting, continue past your own resistance, form a habit of paying attention to what you pay attention to, record your blind spots as well as your focal points. Transcribe someone else's words. Work a form. Substantially edit something. The original can't be harmed and if you already are closed, the worse that can happen is to remain closed. But you might open, or learn or play. Lower the stakes on your own game while bringing it up by keeping at it.(less)

Can you know you…moreWriting is formally setting aside the time to complete all the thoughts that we all have, and may even complete inside our heads. Can you know you understand or really don't understand something until you express it? It is a luxury in the way any developed skill is. A gymnast who shows what the body we are all given is capable of, a carpenter who with universal spatial skills can build something that any of us could if we devoted the years to the rough shape and fine nuance of skills. It is an indulgence to do what you must instead of living in as much compromise as possible.(less)

Passing Under Heaven by Justin Hill
"An unusual , and rather quirky read. The Tang Dynasty is so unlike anything I have read before , the relationship between husband wife and concubines is so different from western culture.
A good read! "
Passing Under Heaven by Justin Hill
"I read about 200 pages before I gave up. I heard the part when Lily was a child was slow but even when I got past that, it was still slow. And depressing. I wasn't enjoying it so I decided to stop reading it."
