This from Austin Kleon is spot on. In my experience — and I say this both as a writer and as a Christian — the scariest thing that can happen is also the best thing: genuinely getting to Empty. Genuinely having nothing to give. Because it’s only at that point that you can truly realize that “It’s not inside you trying to get out, it’s outside you trying to get in.”
