Keep Your Hand Moving

While we’re discussing writing truths to live by, we must review the “rules of writing practice” (ala Natalie Goldberg). Here they are in no particular order:

1. Keep your hand moving.
2. Don’t cross out.
3. Don’t worry about grammar, punctuation, spelling or even the lines on the page.
4. Go for the jugular.
5. Don’t think.
6. You are free to write the worst sh*t on Earth (or any other planet).

And then there’s the three classics from Katagiri Roshi:

1. Continue under all circumstances.
2. Don’t be tossed away.
3. Make positive effort for the good.
