Barren Nothingness

If I'm trying to sleep, the ideas won't stop. If I'm trying to write, there appears a barren nothingness. ~Carrie Latet

The hardest part of the barren nothingness is writing past it, freewriting is the answer. Many of my morning pages show that if you keep writing past the I have nothing to say you will eventually break through. Some of those pages have turned into poetry or the start of a short story. Look through your morning pages or your daily writing this week and pull out one sentence. Take that sentence and write for thirty minutes. Now get back to work.

Lovingly,

The Writing Nag
