Whizzing along with my pen in my hand,
I watch the words form and it’s just as I’d planned.
Then, crash, bang, whallop, the ideas fizzle away,
Evaporating into nothing, now what to say?!
I’ve a void to fill, as I read back on my thoughts,
In the hope I’ll return to virtually all sorts…
All sorts of inspiration, all sorts of masterpieces,
But it’s not good, it’s not happening, my brain once again freezes…
So, dear reader, with not alot to show,
I’ll succumb to the blockage that is every writer’s woe,
But all’s not lost, don’t call the writing police,
This piece of writing has unlocked a literary masterpiece!
By Carol Cameleon
I find that if I write a very short, nonsense rhyme at the end of a writing session, it kind of closes the creative ‘door’ (or at least keeps it ajar – it’s never full closed!) and gives me ‘permission’ to call it a day! It doesn’t matter that it doesn’t make sense or has very tenuous rhymes. Which is just as well 😉
