Image: FreeDigitalPhotos.net This might be a bit different than most of my posts… I want you to do nothing.  So much talk (from me and others) is about action.  I intend to keep it that way… except for today.  Today I want you to take some time to do nothing.  As I write this post, [...]

Lights, Camera, Action

Image: FreeDigitalPhotos.net Continuing from Simple Premise #7 I wanted to talk more about action. As a writer I sometimes feel wrong saying this, but I don’t want you to spend your time reading and thinking.
