Blank Page

I have come to this page knowing that I want to say something but without knowing what it is.

Here are the things I do to enable me to write when I have nothing to say:

  • Trust that I have interesting things lying in wait within my mind, just waiting for the opportunity to get out, which stems from the idea that I …
  • Believe that the voices in my head are not completely under my control but that they have their own life and their own things to say, and so …
  • I don’t have to worry about doing this all by myself as if I were alone in the vast spaces inside my mind with only my memories to keep me company.
  • And anyway, theres always the automatic word suggesting system on this device to fall back on, just in case I genuinely do run out of ideas.
  • In fact, some of the best things I say seem to come from accidents anyway. I’ll press the wrong key and the perfect word appears, which sparks off the perfect sentence and paragraph and before I know it, I’ve written a best-selling novel!
  • And then I’ll wake up with an arm made of rubber and drool all over the pillow.

In conclusion – there’s no big secret to writing. All you have to do is write. The trick is to find the people that are interested in reading it. Any ideas?

  1. You just wrote a post about not knowing what to write, AND you included points to help other writers who inevitably run into the same issue time and again. That’s awesome.
    What about the suggestions you received yesterday?
