Decalogue to overcome the pressure of the blank page

pressure of the blank page

1- No matter how hard I try, any good idea in my mind will never sound half as good once written down (and it just happened again while writing this rule)

2- Any deep reflection that I wish to capture in writing will automatically become anodyne and shallow once re-reading the text

3- There will always be someone who will know how to express in a much graceful and talented way whatever thought or feeling I have towards a work of art

4- No matter how good my English might be, the fact that it’s not my mother tongue will always determine the final result

5- Done is better than perfect: the longer it takes me to write again, the harder it will become

6- I don’t need to prove anything by writing on this blog, this is just for me. My only command is to be honest and collect beauty in all sorts of expression

7- Always remember how good it feels to reread some of my previous posts and realize I took the time and energy to accomplish them

8- This blog is like a good old friend. It doesn’t matter if we lost contact for a while, it’s a place I can always come back to

9- There has been a few moments in life when I’ve felt truly connected, let’s spread the news

10- I’m the only one who can make this happen
