Following through from Monday’s dVerse challenge on writer’s block, which is an interesting topic, and a less interesting experience, though mine have been few and very short lived.
“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.” Hilary Mantel
At 7.30 something was brewing strong, but it slid into white space at the edge of my mind, a word intermittently blinked as my wiring fizzled, shorting out at 7.35 and my distended sigh was a moan of grief for the lost sentence, words, unfound, blurring into the grey distance , my muse was mute lost in a deep, foggy, field somewhere, I don't know where, no scheme or rhyme occurred, no stanza arose, I was punctuated tight and ungrammared long, the full-stop appeared as a welcome revelation, that all had ceased, my literary boat becalmed.
