How to Start and Stay Writing

I recently solicited my watchers to ask me writing questions that I would then attempt to answer in a writing guide such as this. This article is my first response, and there will be many more to come. I've been asked to give advice on ways a writer can begin to put words on a page.

Coin - OPERATED - Boy

Tick. Tick. Tick. Why this girl had a clock in her basement was even a mystery to her. It ticked away her time and effort, reminded her that she didn't have much longer to finish. It echoed off the bare, cracked walls, off the cold floor, and through her aching head. The only light hung dangerously from the ceiling and down on the steel bed, making parts of it shine through the dust, blood and operating instruments. On the bed lay her subject. The one gathering the dust, losing the blood, the one those instruments and utensils were there for, because of. A white cotton sheet covered the lower half of his still body, leaving his chest wide op
