Peter has something good to say about those times when you have nothing to say – writers block.
His advice? Say something – even if it doesn’t feel too profound.
It’s a good point.
In fact it’s a strategy I use regularly and find to work for me. It’s quite amazing how often when you begin to write (usually complete drivel at first) that as you write you can often stumble upon something that’s pure gold.
Of course in these instances I usually delete the first paragraph or so – but some of my best posts emerged out of… well nothing.
