The Second Question
When I start with that blank page, whether I think about it or I stare into space, two questions are waiting in white letters on the white space. I have to make myself see them and answer them before I will ever be able to write. The questions are basic and always the same.
What will your topic be?
What do you want to say about it?
If I can answer those two questions, the piece pretty much writes itself.
It really is as simple as that.
