Writer's Block

Posted on October 15, 2015 at 6:55 PM

In my seventh grade English class, our teacher would have us do "free writing" every Friday.  It was our time to write about anything we wanted.  She didn't grade content or spelling or punctuation.  All she was looking for were words on the page.  They could say anything.  She didn't care.  She just wanted us to write freely.  Often times, my classmates would complain about not knowing what to write or not having anything to write.  Her reply was always the same.  She would say, "Just start writing.  Write one word over and over, or one sentence over and over.  Once you start writing, the words will come." 

Lately, I have been experiencing a bit of a writer's block.  Every time I sit down to update my blog, my mind just goes blank.  It has been many weeks now and I have written nothing.  So, taking my seventh grade English teachers' words to heart, I decided that it is time I just sit down and write anything that comes to mind.  Here we go...

Sometimes I say to my husband, "I want to be reincarnated as one of my cats."  He always replies, "How is that supposed to work?"  Well, I don't know.  I am sure in some parallel universe, time space continuum there is a way that I can come back as one of my cats, living here in Darby (or a parallel universe Darby) and owned by me (clearly a parallel universe me) and lead the life of one of my cats.  My cat name would be Heather (although I don't have, nor have ever had, a cat named Heather).  I would spend my days lounging in the yard in the sun or out in the field hunting mice.  When I felt like I was deserving of a nap, I would make my way through the kitty door, into the house, up onto the bed, and snuggle up into my little kitty bed for a nice long nap.  When I woke up from my 13 hour nap, I would casually stroll into the living room and barf up the half digested mouse that I had eaten earlier all over the carpet.  Then I would go back outside and nap in the warm sun until dusk, when I would do more hunting in the pasture.  At about 1:00 in the morning I would make my way back inside, hop up on the bed, and snuggle under the comforter for a nice long slumber, purring contentedly the entire time.  Doesn't that sound lovely?  I sure think so...

And speaking of wine, I love it.  I actually remember the first time I tasted wine.  I was on Christmas vacation from college and had gone to stay with my brother for a few days before we both went to our parents' house.  My first night at my brother's house, we made a delicious dinner and he poured me a glass of Cabernet.  I was used to drinking Midori sours and Zima with Jolly Ranchers at college, so when I took my first sip of wine I nearly gagged.  "This tastes awful!" I said to my brother.  He looked at me, straight faced, and replied, "It's an acquired taste.  Keep drinking it.  You WILL like wine."  Since my bro was then and still is my hero and role model, I did what he said and kept drinking.  I made it through the first glass and asked for a refill.  Halfway through the second glass I was sold.  I've never looked back.  I love wine.  I love everything about it.  I love the bottles, the labels, the process of opening the wine with a corkscrew, the POP when the cork comes out.  I love pouring the wine into the glass and seeing the color and smelling the aroma.  I love the first sip, whether it's a new wine I've never tasted or a wine I buy regularly.  I love savoring every drop, and I am always sad when my glass is empty.  The only drawback to wine is the alcohol.  Or maybe it's a good thing.  If wine could taste like wine and not have alcohol I would probably drink it all day every day.  So I guess it's good that it does have alcohol and I have to limit my consumption.  Wine without alcohol is basically grape juice, and I don't really like grape juice.  Maybe that's an acquired taste too.  My bro never told me I had to like grape juice.  I think I will just stick with my wine.  It is the best ending to every day.

I think my seventh grade English teacher was right...

I needed to draft you a little note to finally say thank you yet again regarding the unique knowledge you've contributed above. It is quite incredibly open-handed of people like you to convey easily exactly what most of us could possibly have offered for an electronic book to end up making some cash for their own end, most notably now that you could have done it if you ever wanted. These points as well worked as a great way to fully grasp many people have the identical dreams similar to my own to grasp more and more on the subject of this condition. I'm certain there are millions of more pleasant sessions ahead for those who scan through your blog.

I must show some thanks to this writer for bailing me out of this situation. After checking through the search engines and coming across basics which were not pleasant, I figured my entire life was gone. Being alive without the presence of strategies to the issues you've fixed all through your good write-up is a critical case, as well as the kind that would have adversely affected my entire career if I hadn't noticed your web site. Your actual knowledge and kindness in handling every aspect was vital. I don't know what I would've done if I had not come across such a step like this. I can at this time look forward to my future. Thanks so much for this specialized and results-oriented help. I will not think twice to refer your web sites to anybody who should have guidance about this issue.

I have to show some thanks to the writer just for rescuing me from this particular circumstance. Right after scouting through the world-wide-web and coming across ideas which were not helpful, I was thinking my entire life was well over.

Your good natural talent and kindness in playing with all the pieces was excellent. I'm not sure what I would've done if I hadn't discovered such a solution like this.

It's certainly pretty generous of you to make openly precisely what numerous people would've offered for sale as an e-book to get some bucks on their own, specifically considering the fact that you might well have tried it if you ever desired.

I as well as my buddies have already been checking the best recommendations on your site and so immediately I had an awful feeling I never thanked the web blog owner for those strategies. Most of the ladies ended up certainly happy to see them and have without a doubt been making the most of these things. Thanks for being simply kind and then for picking out certain awesome topics most people are really eager to learn about. Our own honest regret for not saying thanks to you earlier.
