THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS!
And yet, you sit and stare.
And the words don’t come.
You want them to flow.
But nothing happens.
And your mind races.
And your body tightens.
While your brain freezes.
You abandon caution; commit fully; press the pen to the paper (or fingers to keyboard) and let go. Aye, you might produce a pile of junk. But you might find a gem or two emerging.
Even if you bin every single word, you’re no worse off. In fact you’ve gained two things – burned off a few calories and identified what doesn’t work.
Whenever you’re stuck, just start. Good things might happen.
