Writing when nothing to write

Every once in a while I write even though I have nothing to write. This is one of those times.

Sometimes something comes out of it, sometimes it doesn't. But I keep doing it in one form or another. Because...

It's easier to keep going than to get started.

I find it more motivating to do it publicly - even if no one reads it. It adds a bit of healthy "pressure". And it's more fun, especially when doing it with the right blogging tool.

But it doesn't matter how you do it.

Write on a piece of paper, your phone, a computer, or whatever. Write spontaneously or thoughtfully, in depth or effective, personal or general. Write a sentence, 500 characters, or three pages.

It doesn't matter. It's all up to you. There's no contest, and there's no right or wrong.

Just keep writing...
