Every Friday, Kate Motaung posts a word to spark five minutes of writing. This week, the word prompt is STEADY.
“Slow but steady wins the race.”
Who hasn’t heard that motto or read Aesop’s fable of “The Tortoise and the Hare”? It is a lesson we all can (and maybe should) embrace.
When we steadily work on something, taking our time, being careful to do our best, we can achieve much.
It is that steady plodding forward that is the secret – keep moving, step by step; keep doing, eyes forward.
Writers are told to write daily and it is this daily action, no matter the number of words written, that improves our writing.
