The blank page

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Nothing is so intimidating to a writer as a blank page. It doesn't matter if it's the first page of a new book, a short story, or just the next chapter of your book. It sits there taunting you.

Daring you to put words to it.

The wrong words.

That's the problem.

The first words on the page always seem to be the wrong words. They're too vague. To weasly. They have no bite. No life.


I hate blank pages.

Luckily, when I'm around, they never stay blank for long.

    It's not the blank pages that get me. It's the blinking cursor on the blank word document. The evil, taunting, impatient creature.

    All my rough drafts are pen and paper--well, fine point sharpie and paper--for that reason.

    I know what you mean. A blank sheet of paper is an abomination. Fill it!
