Writing in silence,
The commotion in my mind
Shouts out loud and clear.
I wrote the haiku a few days ago, when I was bursting with ideas. However, today I feel stumped. Why is it hard to come up with a topic for my writing? I have a lifetime of experience! I should be able to plunge my hands into an ocean of ideas and come out with something fresh and sparkling…but now it feels like the entire ocean has evaporated. Inspiration runs dry. The stories that I imagine seem lifeless. I want to continue with the Slice of Life challenge, but I don’t want to waste the reader’s time.
Good old writer’s block. Hopefully, I’ll come up with something more substantial for tomorrow.
