Writing inspiration #6 – write like no one is watching

Write like no one is watching you

I love that saying ‘dance like no one is watching.’ It’s a philosophy that I carry through to my writing. Because, no one is watching and I only have to share what I wish to share and that has been edited. The inspiration for the quote comes from William W Purkey.

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”

Take inspiration from this, turn off your monkey chatter and enjoy the process.
