#1 Start somewhere

Everything starts from somewhere.

Books start from the momentum of the first word, then a sentence, then one paragraph, then a page. It builds from there.

Movies begin from a writer sitting in a dark room dreaming up the first line of a dialogue, or one scene sketched out on paper.

Paintings arise from one uncertain stroke that leads to the next.

Start somewhere. It doesn’t matter where. Begin small and gently.

The bar — one word, one line, one stroke — is so low you cannot help but succeed.
