The page is empty,

The keys are cold,

The mind is blank,

And the critic is in control.

I could write about

  • Gratitude – Complaints
  • Cats – Dogs
  • Cooking – Eating
  • Weather – Season
  • Books – Movies

I don’t know. Instead I ruminate, drink another cup of coffee, throw laundry in the dryer, then sit and stare.

Let’s hope I do better tomorrow!

  1. You managed to write such an entertaining piece about not being able to write! And I even have a list of possible topics to write about now. =)

  2. This is the truth, isn’t it? I like your list – maybe it will get you going tomorrow. And one way or another, you’ve written. That’s worth celebrating!

  3. This definitely speaks to (for) me. Too bad there’s not an app to by-pass keyboard and send ruminations directly to a compose screen…otoh that way I could also be spending a lot of time in Facebook jail


  4. I can easily relate to your writer’s block, and you spoke of it simply and clearly. I appreciate that you mentioned, “the critic is in control.” That nagging voice telling me my work is not good enough is, I think, the biggest obstacle of all.


  5. Feeling much the same today. I wonder what I’ll come up with. Thanks for sharing this small slice. You are touching a lot of people with it who can relate!


  6. We all have these days. I appreciate when people share. It’s fascinating how even when they have a blank page moment, the words still appear on the page. “I ruminate, drink another cup of coffee, throw laundry in the dryer, then sit and stare.” – would make a fabulous one sentence slice.
