This phrase is said quite a lot in my office. For anyone not as street as me *ahem*, it stands for Just F*cking Do It. And not in a 'for f*ck's sake, just do it' way. It's supposed to be more 'if you want to do it, get on with it!'. I like to use it as a great excuse for satisfying my lust for travel, but writing also has very close links with this slang.
Writing. So many people call themselves writers but just don't. How many of us think 'oh, I'll get around to it... another day'? How many of us wish we'd started writing earlier? And for those who have yet to put pen to paper, how many of us want to write but haven't got the confidence yet?
Perhaps you're a writer who thinks some time should be spent this weekend working on your current article, novel or poem. Perhaps you're an inexperienced wannabe who fancies penning something.
Start small. Work on something easy to get your creative juices flowing. Try something new. Write from a prompt. Write about what you see from your window. Set yourself a wordcount challenge.
You wanna do it? JFDI!
