    When I’m in the mood to write — most all the time — the worst thing for me is when I first sit down at the computer and just sit and sit for a few seconds – well, okay, minutes – just taping my fingers on the home keys. I absolutely love to type – which is writing too – just not by longhand. Sometimes, I totally forget what I wanted to write about before the next idea or thought comes along. So, for me, it’s the old “blinking cursor-white page” syndrome. But, once I get started writing on a particular subject the ideas begin to flow rather easily. I believe that “writing” is indeed a very good way to purge our minds of the mass confusion that creeps in during the day.
