Writers can suffer from writers block, once they are confronated with the pure white paper. Where to start? A question also known by painters standing in front of a new white canvas. On the other hand an overwhelming view provides an overload of information. It's hard to pick out a theme you want to use, whereas pure whiteness forces you to focus on your own thinking.
