This morning, while brushing my teeth, I could think of a dozen topics I wanted to write about. I could even write them in my head. They were glib and sometimes profound. AND the words flowed…..in my head.
So when I finally sat down and faced a blank sheet of paper (yes I still write on paper, no technology for me) my mind froze! The space between my ears was once again One Big Empty.
Yes I have thought about carrying around my journal for those moments when I am brilliant, but you can carry just so much in your purse before it gets so heavy your arm drops off. I have been know to write ideas while at a traffic light. I had a friend that use to write while she was driving her car. WOW I am betting that is more dangerous than texting. (Please don’t text and drive my friends.)
So here I am once again with I am sure lots of good ideas in my head and the words are stuck somewhere!
“writing about a writer’s block is better than not writing at all”
