Hello Felixstowe.

Just wanted to say how much I like your web site it is a great resource for writers.

Up to now I have 'lurked' in the background but I was tempted to send you an e-mail after I saw some of the Art school series on tv. I don't know if anyone saw it but some fairly well known tv stars spent 2 weeks learning to paint and draw. By the end of the series not many of the stars could claim to have developed technically great drawing skills but they had mostly overcome a fear of being creative perhaps this is something knocked out of us in childhood.

The point of all this is to ask if you could do a feature providing help and advise for writers who are total beginners. Where do you start ? How do you overcome the fear of the blank page?

Anyway keep up the good work
