Wherein I endeavour to share writerly advice lightened with humour, pictures and a dollop of 1930s-1940s history.
Elspeth - Those 'photos - especially that last one - are absolutely priceless!! Just priceless! Let's face it; writing is a scary thing to do on a lot of levels. Those who write really do a courageous thing. Most people don't think about that - unless they write.
Margot; I'm glad you liked the post. I completely agree, only another writer will understand the courage it takes to face that blank page.
LOL -- Now I'm going to think of this post every time I open Word.
I hear you. My muse is on vacation and that is exactly where I am at -- terrified of the blank page.
Patricia; Muahahaha.Kit: I'll bet you one piece of lost luggage that if you actually start writing that vacationing muse will return before you finish the page.
From my perspective Dentists are worse than blank pages. Just!
So true. That flashing cursor on a blank screen is a real spine-chiller.TerryTerry's PlaceRomance with a Twist--of Mystery

Tittering my way back to work. Thank you for the giggle.
Call me Little Miss Muffet, please.
That last one can make me cry some days...
That microphone makes me want to karaoke. Probably so I can procrastinate and not face a blank page.
Please leave a comment as I love to hear from you!
