I want to write but when I sit down all that fills my paper is tears. The pen cuts deep. It skips past the words I need and leaves me alone with scribbled mess. No character comes to mine. No scene with the scent of nature or city. No story.
Just tear it up and toss it out. Another useless day. Glassy eyes with mirror reflection of failure. The fight is gone.

Work in progress….general impressions.

  1. I encourage you to back away from the monitor… Step back and return to blank sheets of paper where you ask yourself the “big questions” about your stories. I find the “typing chair” to be quite stressful if I don’t sit down knowing what I am about to write. Perhaps more planning is needed. If you’d like, take a look at a few of my posts on planning. Maybe that will help you feel freed up.

    1. I thank you for the concern but this is just a piece. Maybe, future poem. In future drafts, I will look into softening the language.
      Though, I will take a look at your post on planning. I love finding new tricks and tips for planning and writing.
