There’s nothing more difficult to overcome than the blank page. It doesn’t matter if you are writing a novel, a short story, or an essay. The best thing to do is get those words on the page. Editing is fun. You take your first words and mold them into something sparkly and spectacular. The first draft is like a bare skeleton. It doesn’t look like the final product. You need to use your editing skills and more rough drafts to add the muscles, the skin, the curves, and features.
Take your time and add the sparkles. Your writing will thank you for it.
