For me, most of the anxiety and difficulty
of writing takes place in the act of not writing.
It’s the procrastination, the thinking about writing
that’s difficult.

Adam Mansbach

If you write, then you’ve been here at one point or another. It’s the procrastination that’s difficult.  What holds us back?  Is it the fear of failure?  Is it the lack of ideas?  Don’t even know where or how to begin?

The key is just starting.  Write in anything about anything.  It doesn’t matter what, it doesn’t have to be good, but writing anything is better than writing nothing.  Eventually, the muscle memory will take over and you’ll begin to write without all the angst.  It happens.  But first you’ve got to put the pen to the paper…or is that the fingers to the keys?

To help with what to write about, I’ll be starting up the Creativity Prompts again.  Look for them on Fridays.  In the meantime, check out this post on How To Spark Your Creativity with Prompts.
