Everyone says that the hardest part to writing is starting.
You can't help but stare at that blank page/screen, trying desperately to come up with the perfect first sentence. You think you've got it, you start typing it . . .
You delete it.
Over and over this happens. You know that it doesn't have to be perfect, you know it can be crappy, it's only the first draft after all, but you just can't bring yourself to write something bad. How can you? This idea is great, it deserves nothing but the best writing from you. But right then you just don't have the best writing in you. There are just too many ways to start.
So what are you to do? Well, you could . . .
1.) Bask in the Radiance of the Greats: You could Google inspirational writing quotes until the words fill you up so much that it's impossible for you not to start. So caught up in the advice of the great successful writers that you just have to be like them, and suddenly, you're on a roll.
2.) Stick to the Endless Cycle: You don't do anything but sit there, think, start typing, delete. Repeat. Over and over and over. Eventually, you know you'll find the perfect sentence.
3.) Walk Away: You didn't really feel like writing anyway . . .
Hey, guys, sorry for the short post. Hope you enjoyed anyway though. :)
Like always, comment your thoughts! Don't hesitate to tell me what I missed.
A good chunk of you already know who I am, considering I sent you here, but for those of you people who found my blog by accident, let me introduce myself. My name is Madison Anderson and I was born and spent little more than half my life in Oregon (US for those of you who don't know and don't want to look it up), so it's no wonder I like the rain. I'm obsessed with Disney (bought myself a Woody doll and I'm so happy :) ) and books. I'm now into drawing, and whenever I get around to it I plan on selling my work.
