When There’s Nothing to Make

When we’re overwhelmed by choice, it gets hard to face a blank page. There’s so much to say, so much to do, and we’re limited by our means (like our two hands and time).

One way around having nothing to make is to create limits, like saying, “I have to make.”

I have to make a jingle about Thai food and Toronto.

I have to paint a painting that captures my feelings about my childhood.

I have to write a chapter about how to make a good cup of coffee.

Going forward with definition helps, especially when the blank page is present.
