|My Word Collection--words with which I can |
Prompt 1: Being a good southern woman, I talk and write in cliches so this was a little more difficult than I had first anticipated. Write a paragraph using nothing but cliches (that part was a cinch). Then re-write the same paragraph avoiding cliches (like the plague...get it?).
Writers block has been like swimming in molasses. I keep slapping lipstick on that pig and calling it a day. As a result my writing has been a few bricks shy of a full load. When the month off from social networking is up, I may discover I should have zigged instead of zagged. Absence may make the heart grow fonder, but it may also make my fans abandon ship. Although, since actions speak louder than words, maybe I will gain too. All that glitters is not gold and the luster of blogging has dimmed for me. So far though, I have written my heart out and everything is coming up roses. I guess even a blind dog finds a bone once in a while.
The obdurate resistance that is writers block restricted my creative process last month. I continued to persevere by writing anything, hoping it would be enough. As a result, my products were lacking so I decided to abstain. When the month off from social networking is up, I may discover that I should have kept writing if only to maintain my readership. One can hope her readers abide the hiatus and maybe, just maybe, inspire others to participate. Blogging, a cherished activity that sparkled and kept my interest with its novelty, had begun to dull and become more of a chore than an outlet for creativity. So far though, the pause in publishing has given me more of a desire to just write, and I am finding the aftermath typically falls into two categories..."I Can't Wait to Share This" and "Do NOT Push the Publish Button!"
