The wall…

One month.

Thirty-one days.

More than four weeks.

That’s how long it has been since I’ve written…anything.

That’s me up there, smack dab against the wall.

It’s not that life has been a whirlwind of pleasant activity lately, quite the opposite in fact,  and it’s been enough to bring a halt to all the pounding words inside my head, each pushing and shoving while trying desperately to work their way out of my tired brain.

Writing prompts.  Love them but haven’t been able to muster-up any focus in that direction and it’s frustrating as all hell.

I’m feeling like a total slacker in the writing department and can do nothing more than stare at this damn wall, wishing I could put my fists right through the bricks so that I can bask in some creative sunlight again.

 Metaphorically-speaking, of course.

It happens to the best of us but, I’m not the best.  Just someone trying to get on that page of accomplishment, someone trying to finish a book and maintain a blog, someone wishing they had something worthwhile to share.

This too shall pass, I’m sure.  Well…kind of but not completely.  I mean, one has to have hope but when the sailing gets rough…know what I mean?

Keep a lifeline handy….

    Hey girl! I have to say I have missed you around. Go ahead and punch that wall and then you can blog about it. 😉 Hey, it’s something, right? I hate writers block – hope you feel better soon.

    Crap. It’s agonizing to hear that you’re going through this. I wish I could somehow help, but lately, my mind hasn’t been the best either. I blame it on the weather: coming out of the foggy, frozen, dullness of winter and running full-force into unexpectedly warm spring temperatures. It doesn’t help that the weather hasn’t been able to make up its confused mind either… and not just from week to week, but from day to day.

    And, yes, you ARE one of the best writers. I love how you respond to writing prompts. Always so whimsical, gut-wrenching, thought-provoking, and creative. You’ve got the gift, girl. And if you’ve got to give it a rest for a while, do so… do anything you need to in order to get back to your most invigorated and inspired self. We’ll be here waiting.

    In the meantime, know that you’re missed, prayed for, and loved.

    Hang tight to that lifeline. You know I am out here waiting to see what wonderful, or sassy, or wonderfully sassy thing you’ll say next!
