Dance like no one is watching.
Sing like no one is listening.
Write like no one is reading???
The idea is to do things with abandon…freedom…passion…not caring who might be watching, isn’t it?
Let me ask you something.
If you knew no one would ever read your words, would you still write? Would it still be satisfying? Would it still make you all warm and fuzzy inside to know you have put your words—and thus your feelings and emotions—on paper?
Can you be fulfilled even if you are the only one who will ever read what you have written?
If so, you have the heart and desire necessary to be a writer.
Now, true, if you are going to put your words “out there” in the form of an article or book, you also need to do a good job of writing and editing–as if everyone will be reading what you write.
Make it as perfect as you can.
But, when it all comes down to it, write with the freedom and abandon that draws your readers in and invites them to sing and dance right along with you.
