Eventually it happens to all of us. The well runs dry. You're running on fumes because there's nothing left in the tank.

Over the years, I've run out of gas any number of times in a variety of contexts. Sometimes you have to power through. Most of the time something is better than nothing even though you know that the something isn't right, isn't good, isn't enough. 

When it comes to writing, do it anyway. Put something on the page because you can fix it later. After you've had a snack, or a nap, or even a shower. Take a walk. Come back to it in an hour.

You may find it wasn't that bad after all.

But you can't discover that if you don't have anything there to begin with.
