Breathe

Blank

Yes, still blank.

The cursor beeps

Mocking

Teasing

Blank still?

Blink

The eyes move

Ashamed

Afraid

Another blink

Yet another.

Blur

The screen fades

Emotions rage

It is time

For a break

To

Breathe.

    Hmmm
    Just wondering
    Do writers really ever go blank
    Or is it that they don’t trust their ‘ink’?
    The mind is constantly busy
    Well maybe just mine…
    Even in the state of so called ‘blankness’ ink still splatter on paper.
    Beautiful ‘blankness’ doc๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜‰

      sometimes it is the ‘busy-ness’ of the mind and all the noise that stifles the creative process…and creates a state of blankness…

      1. Spot on! Never wanting to deliver something short of one’s established standard reinforces the block.

        Brief. Dope. iLike.

    A beautifully, very well thought-out piece, this! I’m no writer but I know that everyone deserves to take time-outs every once in a while to refresh and re-boot! You know, for a clear head! That makes for easy rationalization, cause whether we like it or not, the brain needs to be allowed to go to sleep for more efficiency! Plus, the more the rest you put in, the better the output you receive! Something’s gotta give, so Doc; go on ahead and breathe and you’d be amazed at the result you get afterwards! After all, bodi no be firewood o! *laughing*

    Soar on up Sire, you’ve got this locked down! Cheers!

      stop this “I am not a writer” routine, it is getting old! if you, Yemie, are not a writer, then I wonder who is!
      Yes, the secret to productivity is plenty rest and a tension free brain…when writers hit a brick, rather than struggle, all they need is a breather…
      So, how is the story going? 24th is fast approaching….do you need a breather?

      1. Yemie says:

        Holy Rigatoni! Aren’t we getting a tad ticked off here?! Oh Wow! *chuckling*

        Keep your scrubs on Doc! I’m not the ‘All-Nigerian Floperoo’, my story’s been ready for a long time now, so you can BREATHE again! Don’t have no plans to disappoint thee on that one and I certainly don’t need no breather! That would be you and your writer colleagues, no?! *raised eyebrow* LMAO!

              1. Yemie says:

                Uw! You’re such a tease mine QnDC aren’t you?! How’s it even possible for some ‘no- writer’, to shake her so-called ‘word-filled wand’, to make one who’s already A CERTIFIED WRITER a writer?! How does one do that?! *shrugs* LMAO!

                Quit goofing around Amity, you’re a great writer and we both know it so quit rubbing it in already will ya?! If anything, I get to learn at thy feet Sensei! The Enigmatic One! *cowtowing*

            oh, is that the new mantra amongst the fairy sisters now “I am no writer?”

            1. Yemie says:

              I really wish I could say that were true Doc but in a very funny twist of fate, my fairy godbooboo, Senor Joe also stated in his latest post that he AINT no writer! So, am guessing that’s the latest trend, fast making waves! Don’t be hating on us! *Yinmu* LMAO!

              1. topazo says:
