Any excuse to post a picture of a piece of cake....
But it's true. Writing small stones, or anything, can be difficult.
It certainly is for me. Some days, I'd rather do anything than sit down at my computer and begin the first sentence.
Why is this? I think a lot of the reason is that when we write, we are trying to say what's true for us. We are putting something out there that people can look at, and have opinions about. We are exposing our vulnerable underbellies, just like our cat Fatty who lies with his paws in the air and dares you to touch him...
This is also why writing is important.
Writing gives us an opportunity to share these vulnerable parts. It gives us an opportunity to find our truth, whatever that might be.
So keep writing small stones. Keep working on your novel. Keep writing in your journal. Get support. Carry on.
We all find it difficult. You're in good company.
