Blank Pages Are Scary

So who else besides me suffers from that incessant syndrome of creator’s block? Blank pages, blank word documents, open notebook with no words—basically the “Flashing Cursor” became my best friend. I used to get it real bad. For everyone it’s different, with different mediums and different duration of times. I imagine.


Specifically my pencil would pause. I’d stare at the paper and then take a quick glace at the clock.

6:45 p.m.?!

It’s been an hour? What have I been DOING with my life?!?

I’d have that mixed feeling of so many things unaccomplished and yet I’d be too afraid to start all the same. I didn’t realize that I was asking the wrong questions, all the while I’d be glaring daggers and darts at my blank sheet.

Any day know, I’m going to draw…SOMETHING.

At this point drawing wasn’t fun anymore. I was forcing it. I was trying to be too perfect without literally doing anything. Too complicated. Thought too much. I wanted too much too fast, but without allowing myself to fail. I needed to be okay with some dud sketches.

Since those days of constantly kicking my Muse out, I’ve come up with a few suggestions. (^^)/
