You’re staring at the blank computer screen. The cursor is blinking, blinking, blinking. It’s ticking, ticking, ticking you off.
Of course, your dilemma is – suppose you put words on that screen and they take you down the wrong track?
Been there. Many, many times. Until I came across this observation, by Will Rogers:
“Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”
So type. Just start. Even if you simply type “I’m just typing because I don’t want to get run over.” Just start and then keep going.
I bet your muse finds you, no matter which track you’re on.
