“It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird; it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.” ~~C.S. Lewis
Sometimes (in our writing lives) we want to go directly from being an egg to flying like an eagle. We can’t.
Time to Break Out
You’ve incubated your writing dream long enough. It’s time now to hatch, to wiggle your wings, to dry your feathers, to walk, run, eat good food–and then fly.
Don’t stay inside your egg too long. As C.S. Lewis says, at some point you will go bad. And by default, the writing dreams will die.
Don’t let that happen to you!
