Today, I still have the same difficulty with starting things. What is the main task to be done in a day; where should I start? I find one very useful piece of advise is to write down one word. This reminds me of the beginning of St John's gospel: "In the beginning was the Word...". Why not start every day with a word? And what a beautiful and profound piece of writing this is!
It is funny that I see my future writing essays. At school I was never so good with words. Age 11, the mere thought of an essay sent me in to a paroxysm of anxiety. Once I started writing, words might flow... but how difficult it felt to put the first word on paper!
