Start Writing to Start Writing

Write your way to motivation, knowledge, and thesis. No matter what your subject, use language to find out more about it. What do you already know about it? What do you believe? Why do you care? (Or why don't you?) Where could you find more information? This writing will help in two ways: First, it will cause you to think connected thoughts about the subject for a sustained period of time, a far more powerful, positive, and predictable process than staring at the ceiling or falling asleep worrying about it. Second, it will create a written record from which to conduct further digs into your subject and to prompt your memory and help you continue a thought. (I keep such records in my journal, others keep them on index cards or in pocket notebooks. It doesn't matter where; what matters is keeping them.)
