The blank page is a damn nightmare.
The writers of the ages have feared it more than evil spirits, wasting disease and visiting in-laws.
Yet, if you want something to happen, you’ve got to spill the ink on that thing.
You’ve got to do it every day.
Like a detective, the writer is always digging.
And when that digging unearths ideas, the writer is desperate for a way to get them down.
The pain of facing a blank page is cured by facing what you’re not doing.
