Start Small

 
Founder of the worldwide movement, To Write Love On Her Arms, Jamie Tworkowski reminisced tonight of how the whole thing started with a chance meeting, exactly ten years ago.

“Big things start small.”

How often do we look to the future, hoping to be a part of something big, not knowing how to get there?

Big things take time.

We can sit back and ask what good it would do to try something new or break into an arena where so many have come and gone before — where you think you might fail — or we can listen to ‘The Answer’:

That the powerful play goes on, and you will contribute a verse.

— Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass (1900)

Start writing your verse.

Don’t think too hard about it. You can make corrections, later.

Just start writing.
