When you can’t write

If ever there was a time to write, it is now.

It is when you can’t that you must.

It is when no ideas come that you must face the screen, flex your fingers and begin.

It is when you are the most afraid of what will come that you must face your fear.

It is when you feel you have nothing to say that you have the most to say.

It is when you think yourself not good enough that you are at your best.

This is the darkest hour of a writer.

This is the moment of truth.

This is where belief is born.

Be strong. Do not falter. You are a writer. You have a story to tell.

Put fingers to keyboard. Stare down that blank screen and…

WRITE!

People will read your words. People will connect with your words. People will come back for more.

Your belief in yourself as a writer will show through…

But you must first believe.

    very true. sometimes when I can’t write yet I push myself to it. Then, the reaction i get from the lovely people who read me, makes me so happy and grateful that I wrote in the first place.

    Love you dearly

    So true. It does start with belief & putting down that internal doubter. Also you need to fight the fight as part of getting to the good stuff.
    Thanks for the reminder. I hope you are heeding your own advice.
