A Blank Page

Shakespeare's King Henry the Sixth, Part I: "of all base passions, fear is most accurs'd" (V, ii, 18)
I'd say so if I was facing a bobsled run like this in Park Cities, Utah
Olympians shall face the real ski jumps in February 2010 in Vancouver, BC Canada. Here at Park Cities, Utah athletes train. This picture was taken a few summers ago. I can't imagine facing this slope for the first time. Oh, you work your way up to it, but sooner or later, if this is your life dream you are going to shove off and hope for the best.

Then again, it's 2010 and I face a blank page. Or I face my NaNo novel and delve into serious edits and re-writes. A new year brings new fears or raises some old ones. Take a deep breath and let's address those fears, curse those fears, and plunge ahead to conquer those fears.

I just filled a blank page. Whew!

  1. This reminds me of the Jamaican bob sled team who practiced without snow. But it looks like Vancouver will have plenty of snow to practice on this week and by Thursday it will arrive here in Texas. We'll be well below freezing brrrrrr. Can't wait to hear more about your new novel.
