I have, here, slipped onto another page. It is a clean white page, 8˝ by 11. A literal tabula rasa. I have been faced with this kind of thing before, and true, it has occasionally daunted me. But today I will not be daunted. I will not be delayed, held back, or slowed down. Today I will conquer the blank page. I will come out on top. I was about to say, “Emerge victorious,” but, Jesus, that really sounds awkward. And I don’t like to use complicated language to express a simple idea—to say something simple. Yes, that’s better.
