One Word After the Other

I hate sitting at my computer with nothing to write.

I sit and I stare.

And I stare some more hoping inspiration will strike.

But that rarely happens.

So I make my fingers type out the thoughts that are going in my head trying to find something that strikes a chord with me.

Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t but I do get some sort of writing done.

Good or bad, we just need to get started.

One foot in front of the other.

One word after another.

That’s how everything is pretty much done.
