Why is it often so difficult to start? In my experience it’s a result of one or more of the following factors: fear, perseverance, and motivation. Each of these can be examined and broken down further, but I’m most interested in examining the component of fear.
I’ve decided to try my hand at writing with some frequency. As opposed to jotting down thoughts in a notebook, taking the time to type words and structure sentences gives it a sense of “permanence”. For me, this is sort of scary. This is one of many reasons why I don’t write.
