Nothing feels worse than sitting at the computer, poised to write something and staring at a blank page.
You want to write, but your mind remains stubbornly blank.
All the ideas you’ve had over the last few days melt away. Even the ones you had the presence of mind to note down seem mediocre and meaningless.
After a while you force yourself to type a few words on the page. When you read them back they sound hollow or depressing. You don’t want anyone else to see them.
It feels like the end of the world.
But it happens to us all.
So when the day comes that you sit down to write and the words flow easily from your fingertips, don’t waste them. Write until there’s nothing left.
Use the good days to cancel out the bad and remind yourself why you love to write, why you can write.
We all have bad days; a lot of them. But they don’t define you. In fact, the days you struggled will only make that finished work sweeter, because you know what it took to create it. And you know that you didn’t let the blank days stop you.
