This week, I met with my “Young Writers-in-Progress” class, a group of talented teenagers who hope to become writers. I wrote on the board this counter-intuitive statement:

Motivation varnothing Productivity

Productivity U+2192.svg Motivation

Exactly what does this mean?

Motivation does not result in productivity. Productivity results in motivation. Once you start writing, you will keep writing.

Do not wait for inspiration!
