A Blog Post on Writing by Wayne Dyer

The other day I made note to the death of Wayne Dyer. I found a nice little blog post he wrote on writing.

I really like his highlighting of the importance of writing without worrying about outcomes. I have seen too often how worrying about outcomes, or about the opinions of others, hinders writer's and scholar's productivity. Of course outcomes matter. Of course the options of others matter. Yet, you can't think about these during the process of writing, or it trigger your own internal critics.

Learn, as Dyer suggests, to see all feedback equally. Learn to stay in the process of writing, day in, day out, and let go of the results. Paradoxically, it leads to much better results.
