How to Start Writing? Apply The Seat of The Pants to The Seat of The Chair

The ideas, the inspiration to write and the motivation must, of course, come from within yourself. The only way to start writing is to sit down in your den and get on with it. If you have the difficulty at first, do not put off. This is not at all uncommon. A good analogy is to compare the human brain to a motor car engine. They both work best when warmed up. On a cold morning the engine can be difficult to start and then it chugs along for a bit. The warmer it becomes the better it works. In a similar way, your mind will work better when it is warmed up.
The answer to our problem is to start writing. Anything will do at this stage in order to get the brain functioning and words on paper. Later, we may well discard what we first wrote but this does not matter if it has achieved its primary objective. Soon we will find that the ideas flow better. We will be able to express ourselves more freely and put down our thoughts precisely as we want them. There is no substitute for sitting down and actually writing. No matter how silly or rough, or uninspired our first thoughts and way of expressing them might be, the important point is that we have started writing!
Remember Arnold Bennett – who was an enormously successful novelist and journalist, was a great believer in steady work. He said: Even mediocre talent, when combined with fixity of purpose and regular industry will, infallibly, result in gratifying success. He believed firmly in the saying "every day its lines", and when he was at the top of his creative form he could turn out about 6000 words a day. All those words were written by hand with his famousstylo pen – a forerunner of today’s ballpoint.
In his attitude to work he resembled Trollope, for he abhorred idleness and the artistic temperament which can easily become an excuse for not writing. He maintained that nothing in life was humdrum and he often talked about the interestingness of existence. Enthusiasm like that shines through a man’s work, for if a writer is bored his readers will be equally bored. Arnold Bennett emphasized the motto learnt by many professional writers from their early years, that the only sure way to write is to apply the seat of the pants to the seat of the chair.

I write any subject that interests me under the merciless sun.
