Blank

Fill in the blank sheet of paper, or fill the blank page of a Word Doc. Either task can terrify even the most skilled writer. But what’s even more terrifying than seeing a blank page? Seeing a blank page remain empty, because the writer behind the pen or keyboard may be uncertain. Uncertain of their direction, of the piece once the work has commenced, and even uncertain when the story is laid out in front of him/her, like a road map.

There are a lot of uncertainties when it comes to the entire writing process, the one reliable tool that we do have to our advantage is our imagination. Which is stronger than those irrational fears that we come face to face with on a daily basis. Fear not the blank page, fear not the writer’s block, but fear the lack of imagination; for it’s when that wonderful gift is no longer present, that we’ll have plenty of reason to worry when the blank page is presented.

  1. That is true, it’s a horrible feeling to have all this knowledge of the world, all the images and stories around us and struggle to come up with anything, luckily the blank page will remain and imagination will kick in even if it need a few beers to kick start it.
