Facing the Dreaded Blank Page

The project you wanted to start—but didn’t.

The feeling is pulling at you, isn’t it.

There’s a pressure to begin, but you don’t know how.

Familiar with the feeling?

It’s the feeling of a blank page you hesitate to fill up because you worry about imperfections.

You might be tempted to stop before you even begin. It’s easier this way.

But everyone who’s faced a dreaded blank page knows that the secret to overcoming a blank is to start with the smallest step forward. 

It’s not to write an entire essay, or a paragraph, or even a sentence. The smallest step forward would be to jot down a note. Something incomplete, rough, and workable.
