What would Jesus do?

We all have our heroes. Idols we look up to and try to model. If you’re a writer for sure you could come up with a name or two of professional writers who have what you would call your “dream job”.

The next time you find yourself in a position that keeps you from writing in some way, think about them. Think about their situation. They do this for a living, they might have big projects, they have commitments, they have deadlines. Something that, in your imaginative future, most likely, you will have as well.

The next time you’re stuck ask yourself, what would they do? What would a professional writer in your situation do? What decisions would he or she make to get ahead in spite of the circumstances?

This change of view puts you in the place of your own observer. You are trying to observe from the outside what you can do to help yourself, with one of your heroes as model.

Then, adapt that model as much as necessary to fit your specific situation to get you going again.
