"Why is it so hard to start?
Just pick up your pencil or your paintbrush, your tap shoes or whatever you do and get started. What are you afraid of?
What is stopping you from going to that place where time ceases to exist and you completely lose yourself to your passion?
You know the place I'm talking about. You love it there!
Why is it easier to do laundry rather than... Wait. What? Did you say afraid? You're not afraid to create, are you?"
