I’ve been there. We all have. You’re sitting at your desk, on your couch, or wherever else you like to write, and you’re staring at a blank editor.

You wonder when the words will come to you.

You wonder when inspiration will strike. You’re ready to catch it, but it’s not quite there yet.

You wonder when you will suddenly start writing.

Sometimes, inspiration just comes to you. It might come at any moment, and you just have to be ready to catch it.

Other times, you might have to call out to inspiration, and make it come to you. Walk around your town, read some articles, watch a movie or two. Do whatever it is you like to do.

Just find your inspiration, and catch it.

In the end, the only way to write is to write.
