When entering the "blank zone," I either stare at the computer screen hoping words miraculously appear or close my eyes, take a deep breath and pray. You'd think the latter would be automatic, but nooooo, not for me. I sometimes get a crazy notion I'm in control, and end up wasting a considerable amount of time frustrated with a strong desire to throw the laptop out the window ... and I know God is watching, shaking His head and smiling.
When faced with a blank page, be it while writing or waking to a new day, we need to look upwards and say, "Okay, God, it's all yours." We will, at times, succumb to self-will; we're human. Be comforted knowing all He wants us to do is try ... He expects progress not perfection.
