Writing is easy they say; just put one word after the other. It’s like walking, but with added punctuation.
The problem is that not writing is easier, and shifting between a state of not-writing and writing is surprisingly difficult. Anyone who says ‘just write’ is already writing, so it’s easy for them. They don’t understand, or have forgotten. Or both.
That’s why I’m writing now here just to get into the habit, those first faltering steps writing drivel purely to get into the habit again. It’s not good, it’s not pretty. But it’s words, one after the other.
I’m walking again.
