Motivation Monday: If it’s Garbage, Get It Down Anyway

When I worked in food service, we had a mnemonic called FIFO. It stood for First In, First Out. 

FIFO is a handy principle to refer back to when you’re writing and your brain refuses to stop throwing up garbage.



The takeaway is that you can’t avoid writing down the garbage. You can’t write around it. You have to take it out to get to the good stuff and keep working.

Have you been in a writing rut lately? Is it time to take out the literary trash?

Happy Monday! What are you working on this week?
