How to fight the blank page

51169446_2587433004605258_5697128209515020288_oEveryone knows the term ‘writer’s block’, but there are endless debates over whether it’s a real thing or a myth, if there are cures for it, and if its avoidable.⠀

Personally writer’s block doesn’t affect me, procrastination does, but when I really want to write but can’t, the easiest way is to just begin. ⠀

That blank page stares back at us like we’re face to face with the enemy. But the threat of that blank empty whiteness can be defeated with a single word. By literally writing anything, a stream of consciousness, a sentence of absolute gibberish, anything at all, that blank canvas isn’t blank anymore. And I can trick myself into writing again.⠀

Just begin.
