What’s a girl to do when she doesn’t feel like writing? The answer is simple. She writes. It’s been a long day. I woke up feeling tired and not wanting to do much. I handled a couple of client projects and have been trying to decide what I could write about.

Isn’t that sometimes the quandary for writers? We sit down at the keyboard or spread eagle a journal, pen in hand and then, nothing. We go blank. We stare at the eggshell white paper and wonder where the muse went. Maybe she’s out grabbing a cup of hot black coffee to wake her so she can sit beside me. Who knows. Either way, she’s gone.

I trust that she will be back tomorrow, nudging me along as I scribble her whispers onto the page.
