Today is the day that William Shakespeare died. (It is also the day of his birth - he certainly knew how to bring a story full circle).
A moment for the greatest. I know - plagiarism and all, but really, it's pretty hard to write Hamlet and The Bible in one lifetime without a little, um, borrowing.
So for giving us Romeo & Juliet, Macbeth, the Taming Of The Shrew, Julius Caesar, King Lear, The Tempest, The Merchant of Venice, Othello, Much Ado About Nothing, Twelfth Night (and those are just my favorites and not even half the list of his work), oh, and again, The King James Bible - Thank You.
Shakespeare didn't just write - he wrote a HELL OF A LOT, so today - get started on being prolific. Maybe it'll end your writer's block, or procrastination to set a goal to just write as many things as possible in your lifetime, you can revise them in the next...
