Great dreams.

Big hopes.

Massive endeavours.

Long journeys.

All large things

take little steps.

Bit by bit

bite by bite

step by step.

War and Peace

started with one word

on the page.

Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony

began with one note.

Huge

begins

small.

Just

begin.

    Baby steps! (have you ever seen the movie ”What about Bob?”? :P)

  2. Susi Bocks Says:

    Exactly! Take the first step and just keep going. 🙂

  3. So true! I regularly remind folks that everyone starts in the same place: with a blank page (or screen) – Stephen King, J.K. Rowling, Joe Schmo – we’re all beginners every time we sit down to write. Keep beginning! 🙂

    Very motivating.

  5. Amen on those “little steps.”
