The first Wednesday of each month, The Insecure Writer’s Support Group has its members write a post in their blogs about whatever is holding them back from writing the way they want to. This is my contribution.
Sometimes I Feel Lost
I sit at my desk with the keyboard in front of me. The screen of the computer shows the work I’ve completed thus far. I’ve lost my place before I’ve even begun. Reading the scene, hopes of recollection fill the air. Yet, the void remains. Where are those words that come next in the story?
I hate when I feel this way. What I want to appear on the screen is someplace there in my head, yet I can’t seem to find it. I often wonder if there will ever be a time when the words will just flow instead of having to drag each one out with the pulling the tugging on the chains of my passion for this craft.
I’m sure others have days like this. However, I have serious doubts that the number of their days are as many as mine. In the past year, I think I’ve only had about four days that weren’t an unbending struggle.
I’m one of those stubborn souls so I just keep on ploughing through the sentences and paragraphs looking for the end.
