‘Don’t do it, dear! Please don’t!’
Writing is the activity I most enjoy doing (I don’t have a girlfriend at present), and yet, though I enthusiastically await every opportunity to write, hoping to create literary compositions, when I am faced with the blank paper I procrastinate. I do a thousand menial tasks to ‘prepare myself for writing.’ And by the time I am done with them, half an hour or more has passed, and I feel too tired to write and forsake the pen and paper. Alas, it is fear of writing!
Or do you write and rewrite and edit all the time and strive to uncover the ideas hidden on the page? The first approach seems easy, but is good writing really effortless?
