Have you ever sat down to write, and an hour, maybe two into it and you still have a blank page? Ah, come on, I know it’s not just me who has done this. I get flooded with feelings of guilt (“I’ve wasted good time”), frustration (“why can’t I manage my procrastination better?”), and self-loathing. […]A Blank Page or Screen Is Not A Writing Strategy — Pedagogical Thoughts
Ah, the blank screen. How many of us writers have stared at it in horror for seconds, minutes, hours on end?
Thanks to Kathe’s wonderful post that addresses this specific scenario, we no longer have to fear that blank screen. She presents simple solutions to this form of writer’s block that I’ve found to be helpful in my own writing career – and some that I haven’t tried, but certainly will in the future!
So if you’ve ever gotten stuck at that blank screen (yes, you, I know you have!!) then take a read through Kathe’s quick and effective post. I really think you’ll find value in it.
Quick side note before I sign off: if you have a writing post that you’d like for me to reblog, please feel free to link it in the comments or email it to me! I’m always looking for new writing blogs to feature but I don’t always have the time to parse through WordPress’ terrible tagging system to find great new writing blogs/posts. I look forward to reading your stuff!
