This goes out to my absent wordsmith/writing liaison. Please come back soon. You are sorely missed.
“I’ve taken a break from writing,”
announces the Queen of All Statements Redundant.
Not because I wanted to or was feeling ornery, it was more like the words wouldn’t come out.
I can’t count the times I’ve come here over the past 3 weeks, staring at the blank screen and waited, hoping that my personal word liaison; the one responsible for translating the jumble of thoughts ricocheting around my brain into that of cohesive (or just coherent, I’d settle for that) sentences would show up, but they never did.
And I’m struggling.
I’m far more accustomed(resigned) to my words not coming when I’m having to speak aloud, rather than the written ones. When the need is present to be pc or eloquent, I can pretty much count on the liaison not to be.
Maybe it’s due to the emotional intensity and roller coaster of events that have transpired this year, or maybe it’s something else entirely. There are so many things-good things and great things-to tell and it’s just not gonna happen-today.
Be that as it may, having writer’s block bites.
So, rather than bore you with more blithering about what isn’t happening, I’ll let you hear what I’m hearing. Who knows, maybe my wordsmith rep will hear it as well.
And take the hint.
Tomorrow will be a better day.
