Potential In A Blank Page

There’s something about a blank page.

It’s full of potential. It’s waiting for words to turn it into something beautiful, something worthy of sharing with others. I love blank pages!

Many of you think that blinking cursor is a curse, your mind goes blank as soon as you see the empty white space.

Don’t be afraid. Fill it!

Describe a character, a setting, or an action sequence.

Pen a poem

Capture the flutter of a hummingbird’s wing, the chiseled jaw of a salty sailor, or the sound of rain on a tin roof.

What is it about writing that you love? Character? Plot development? Finishing or beginning a story?
