The blank page

At my last writers’ group meeting, we talked about how to get over the terror of facing that first blank page in the morning. Here are three possible methods, from three different people:

  • End each day with a cliffhanger sentence, something that will immediately get you writing again.
  • Begin with a random writing prompt, but insert your main character’s name.
  • Set a timer. Commit to writing for 20 minutes… then hope you keep typing after the ding.

Other suggestions?
