Don't be an aspiring writer - be a writer! That idea that came to you last week, that scene you saw outside the Post Office last month, or that way you felt as you saw the police car speeding along with the blues-and-twos on... write about it. A story will come. And when you've written that story, begin another. Pretty soon, each day will be filled with the urge to write; you'll see the world happening before you as a collection of scenes. Writing is life on a page, so it's time to start living.
