There exists a space between the desire to write and actually sitting down to get the words on the page: This is the abyss. Too many writers fall into it and never return.
Sometimes the words won’t come. Or your pencil hovers over the page, unsure what to draw. These are all symptoms of art-block.
Everyone keeps telling us to think outside the box. But what if that’s the wrong advice?
Sitting down to write a novel can seem glamorous, but it takes a serious commitment in work and attitude. Yes, there’ll be those moments when the muses seems to sing and pure genius flows from your fingertips onto the page.
Thank Ogilvy for his advice to creative types. The king of advertising can help you draw, write or paint.

Make a list of all the idiotic and stupid ideas out there. Now, create something better.
