Write one leaf about… hold on a second. I don’t know. Why am I doing this again?

It’s the time of year that I look back on the year of Write One Leaf and think nothing but “Wow, this is really worthwhile, right? It’s worth doing this one more year?”

Yes. I think it is. (I’m Terry, by the way. Nice to meet you.) And for all the followers of Write One Leaf I’d like to say thank you for hanging in there when my posting becomes sporadic, or when my prompts get cliché, or when all of the prompts are of a sort that just don’t move you write anything. That sucks when that happens, but you’re still here… so thanks.

You might be wondering how you can give back to Write One Leaf. And even if you aren’t wondering, I’m going to tell you anyway. 

If you’ve used Write One Leaf at all and you find value in it, consider doing one or more of the following.

  • Read my story at Medium titled “Hydraulics.” It’s a short story. It shouldn’t take long to read. And when you’re finished with it, click the “Recommend” button if you would recommend it to someone else. (Absolutely don’t click “Recommend” if you think the story is rubbish. That would be ridiculous.)
  • Take a look at my book, You Are a Dog. I wrote it. It was published by Harmony/Random House, and people still seem to enjoy it. It’s suposed to be funny. And touching. You can buy it or just visit and see if it’s right for you or someone you love. Someone like yourself. (There are more ways to visit and/or buy You Are a Dog at the bottom of this post, as there are at the bottom of almost every post.)
  • Send a small donation to the Write One Leaf. Any amount will do. And it will make me think that this is worth doing. That I did enough here to earn a tip from you. I know you have a lot of people asking you for money these days, so anything you give will mean that much more to me.
  • Recommend Write One Leaf to a friend.

Okay. That’s all I have to say now. Again, thanks for following, for reading, and for writing. Especially thanks for writing. Keep doing that. Keep writing. Write one leaf in which you too are moved to say thank you.

pip-pippin said: by writing one leaf "with your hands", do you mean like

sign language
motioning out letters with the tips of your fingers

Write One Leaf believed this to be evident. That we wanted you to write. And that most people who write use their hands. The trouble only comes when writers try to use too much of their brains. That is, the try to think the writing rather than write the writing, and therefore spend all their time thinking and none of it writing. Write One Leaf believes this to be an error of writing. You cannot think your way out of writer’s block, for instance. You can only write your way out of it. So begin writing (whether you type or write longhand or hold a pencil between your teeth and scratch out letters one at a time), begin writing. Right now!

Write one leaf about “writer’s block.”
