on Writing Forward:
Have you ever sat down to start a new writing project only to find yourself sitting there, hours later, staring idly at the blank page?
Writing inspiration doesn’t always come easily.
In an ideal world, we always look forward to the blank page, a fresh canvas we can color with ideas and texture with language. When our muse is dancing around, we feel motivated and inspired, so the blank page feels like the start of an exciting adventure.
But if our mind isn’t in the right place, if our muse is on vacation, that same page is nothing but a source of frustration.
