Reading back through the posts on our Rhodia Journal Swap Tumblr blog I came across an entry from early in the swap by Pam Hero:
“I LOVE a brand new notebook/sketchbook – it’s one of my ‘favorite’ things – yet I always have a feeling of hesitation and nervousness when confronted with a beautiful clean page.
Once again, I remind myself:
“Make up your mind to act decidedly and take the consequences. No good is ever done in this world by hesitation” – Thomas Huxley
Page 1 – COMPLETE!
Fear and reservation has been replaced with excitement of possibility…”
I can’t tell you how often I hear from folks who talk about fear of the blank page – or more specifically, fear of the blank first page. Do you feel this way? Or are you able to rip off the plastic and get writing with reckless abandon?
