There's nothing scarier than a blank page. Have you heard this line? Excuse me, that was a typo, it's actually a 'lie.' Have you ever seen the music video for Crossroads by Bone Thugs 'n' Harmony? The Angel of Death, a tall, stoic, dark man with dark glasses approaches and touches the forehead of an older gentleman on his porch playing cards. Upon his fingertips his eyes turn black and he falls backward to the horror of Wish Bone, his card-game compadre. It's terrifying. I loved the song--always will, but that image used to give me nightmares as a kid.
Blank, black eyes. That's scarier than a blank white screen.
"But what do I write about?" You whine. You write what's around. What's taking up space in your head. What happens in your body when the rain flings itself against your window pane in torrents. Write about what's hanging up in front of your face as you face your blinking cursor. And you better have something up there. If you don't, I'll send you something. Just e-mail me your address and I'll drop something in the post that you can post in front of your face to remind you everyday of why you wanted to make in the first place. And when you're sick of writing where you are, move. Go to the movies, the museum, go to a spot that's beautiful outside that no one else has noticed yet.
You could also pay attention to how you present yourself to the world and find the themes that scream out to you. Have you ever done a word cloud on yourself? It's super-fun. Go to Wordle.net (word of warning, you may have to install Java first), Copy and paste all the words from all of your online profiles--social, dating, job sites--throw your bio in there too. And see what concepts balloon. Then write them on sticky notes and put them on the wall and everyday start with that so you will never be scrounging for inspiration or a title again. Talk about getting unstuck. I have done this with the answers that I've gathered from speaking with people who have deemed themselves to be multi-passionates like me, and that is how I start formulating the morning's post each day. It just takes a little looking in and looking out if you want to be creating consistently.
Once you say "YES" to noticing, the world is an enticing place.
