“Don’t let a single day go by without writing. Cause even garbage eventually becomes compost with a little treatment.” Alex Myers, author of The Jump
We love the imagery of agriculture Alex Myers brings into this quote so we get the picture instantly. Compost is basically decayed stuff transforming into fertilizer. Isn’t it awesome that nature teaches writers how to make the most of work they consider to be garbage?
To be honest with you, there is really no such thing as garbage writing. With a little treatment, editing, researching and all the other deliberate efforts that go into bringing beauty out of the ashes of your writing, something awesome can come out of it.
Alex is saying to you today, “DO not let a SINGLE day go by without writing.” Just write something – anything, with the knowledge that even garbage eventually becomes compost with a little treatment.
