Paralyzed on the corner of Fourteenth and Serenity

I have never written a piece on demand… or anything that isn’t in some way about me

Back from being an absentee blogger and contributor… especially as I won’t have the time to tomorrow…

I picked my pen this morning to start… and…
NOTHING
no words, no thoughts… no echoes.
...No fancy metaphors or funny stories come to mind… no fiery adjectives or flowery words …
NOTHING

In the midst of brilliance… I’m completely blank

The fifth link of the machine… I must make good on a promise to a friend
Write… I must

I hope I find my feet by June 3rd, 2008 cos right now I’m just sitting here…
…paralyzed on the corner of Fourteenth and Serenity.

Well, you seem to be a natural for poetry and imagery... or reflective thinking... It doesn't have to be a short story, does it?

I am sure you'll be brilliant! Can't wait.
