The following was originally posted on my Not A Travel Writer sub-tumblr. As tumblr dies following its ridiculous self-destruction, I have decided to correlate all my previous posts, from several places, here. It makes sense and, crucially, means I own my content. In theory, it also means it cannot be removed by anyone else.

And with this day we are now over the 10k limit.

In her book, The INFJ Writer*, Lauren Sapala discusses how important new words are, how crucial it is to write fresh material, not to simply edit and polish. This was a problem I once had, but no longer. The habit of crafting new words is so important for any writer but crucial for those of us who fall into the INFJ type. I am not saying I agree with the whole Myers Briggs test — but it is uncanny how accurate it is for me. (I shall discuss this more on my website…)

Write new words. Simple. 30 minutes a day and, in 10 days, I now have a 10k+ story, nearing the Pointy End.

*worth a read if you are a writer and fall into this category and, yes, that’s me, INFJ through and through.
