Staring at the blank page

I’m in a slump. Tied down tight. I’m in a struggle with me, myself and eye. (sic) A writer’s block some call it. I know it for a fact because I had a full week off work and I purposely avoided my studio. It was dark and there was nothing in there and nothing can be an awfully scary thing. Intellectually I understand that writer’s block is really the fear of failure but that doesn’t make it any easier to shake. I won't go into the other fears that just seem to worsen the syndrome.

I just read a quote by Samuel Beckett. Maybe it will help.
It reads,

Fail. Fail again. Fail better.

Be back soon.
