The blank page looked perfect in the absence of scribbles. No marks to tarnish its appearance.
But the blanker the page was, the messier my mind felt. The blobs of ink that refused to make its mark on the paper, left scratches on my mind mercilessly. I sat in front of my writing journal drenched in the invisible ink that I kept away from the page.
My hand trembled under the weight of the pen. Or was it from the lingering musings?

The blank pages have been taunting me of late too. I hope to join in soon Vini.
So true – the blank page sometimes fills me with guilt – once I fill it with words, however raw, I feel better!
Perfectly right your thought! This is the cause I prefer to right
something after I ‘receive’ an idea. I do not like to stay in front of a blank page. I am not sure why is happening this, but this is a fact!
Thank you Vinitha for sharing these thoughts!
Have a fabulous week!
