Get over your blankpagephobia!

So I’ve been staring at this blinking cursor for about 3 minutes now. How many of us blog owners have come across the same feeling of intimidation and fear of that BLANK PAGE and ever-blinking cursor? It’s like it’s screaming at you “ah-ha! You can’t type anything…you are doomed to stare at this blank page.

Our muses are always around… we just sometimes need to quiet that voice inside our head that is distracting us from writing the words down that are just waiting to be expressed. Sometimes it just takes that initial typing even when you’re not sure of what’s going to come out. Why be afraid? It’s not like you can’t erase it if it’s not “good enough”.

I think too often do we let that ‘voice’ talk us out of writing and the next thing we know it’s been months since our last blog entry. Sometimes we just got to put our foot down and choose to get over our blankpagephobia!

One thought on “Get over your blankpagephobia!

  1. People are going to read the things that interest them and you’ll never know if they’ll be interested in what you have to write if you don’t write it. Sometimes we may be afraid to write because we have it in our minds that someone is going to not like it for one reason or another. Sometimes you can’t actually think of anything to write because you’re tired so your mind is less likely to produce anything when you’re tired. It’s best to just relax and let yourself write when you’re ready to.
