Resources - The Writer’s Desk

There’s a great Latin phrase used in the study of art history; ‘Horror vacui’ meaning ‘fear of empty space’. At some point, most writers, staring at a blank page or screen will associate with that ‘horror’. You try to think of something to write and  …just …nothing …comes.

Helpful blogs, sites and pages for the presentation writer.
