Writer’s Block

“Who is more to be pitied, a writer bound and gagged by policemen or one living in perfect freedom who has nothing more to say?” ~ Kurt Vonnegut Jr.


When I realize that I haven’t written in a long time on the many, many, … (sigh) many social media properties that I squat on, I will often cull through the pictures I have saved on my computer to post hoping that I will be inspired to write. Doesn’t provide a lot of continuity, but there you have it.

I also write to capture a moment, a project, something special that I might want to refer to later. I know the ages of my dog and cats because I’ve added an entry when I added them to our family. Often these collections of topics, quaint proses of mine, become quite long and there is now stuff from 15 years ago. That seems like a lifetime to me. At the risk of boring you, my how time flies. Be well my gentle readers.

“If you get stuck, get away from your desk. Take a walk, take a bath, go to sleep, make a pie, draw, listen to ­music, meditate, exercise; whatever you do, don’t just stick there scowling at the problem. But don’t make telephone calls or go to a party; if you do, other people’s words will pour in where your lost words should be. Open a gap for them, create a space. Be patient.” ~ [The Guardian, 25 February 2010] ― Hilary Mantel
