Every day begins a new battle with the empty page.

One day, you finish writing a chapter. You love it. It’s a pleasure to read. You can’t believe you wrote it, it’s so good.

However, the next day, you begin a new chapter, and once again, you’re lost. You don’t know what you’re doing. Doubt creeps in. What am I writing this for? Do I really have anything to say? Everyone is so much better than me. I hate writing; I hate it.

Six days a week, at the Write Practice, we do battle. We beat the empty page back with our pens, with our imaginations and experience.

On the seventh day, though, we stop. We lay our battle pens down. We lock the empty page in the closet.

Instead, we look over pages full of ink, full of energy and life. Pages that have already been created. They might be ours or they might be another’s. We read. We feast on words. We eat until satisfied.

It takes a day to fill up, refocus, and prepare anew for the battle. If you want to win the fight against the empty page, we encourage you to join us.
