Sometimes, it's just necessary to start.
At the moment, I'm feeling like I've been hit by a truck. I don't know why. I think it started on Friday, when I woke up with a headache that turned into a migraine.
But ever since then, I've been feeling so exhausted. Even when I sleep enough.
So the result is that just the thought of opening a document, or even the blog creation window, feels like having to climb a mountain.
And then I haven't even started actually writing.
So the blank page that appears if I do manage to open becomes a little bit more intimidating. A little bit more... empty.
That's when I write something silly. Or something random. Or just... something. Like "Sometimes it's just necessary to start."
Because the moment there are words on the page, it gets easier to follow up with more words. And even more after that.
And eventually, I can look back at what I've written and discover that I did, in fact, climb that mountain and reach the summit.
Because now I have a blog post.
Now, I just need to go do the same thing with my work in progress.
How do you handle writing when the words don't seem to flow?
