Why I Didn't Write: Part 1

Updated on April 16, 2012

I tried an acrostic poem this time and I think it turned out alright. I just felt like an explanation was needed because I'm in the middle of doing two challenges - a poetry challenge and the 30/30 challenge - and I had writer's block all weekend! So lazy and not a thought in my head!

Note: After reading this one, why not go read: Why I Didn't Write: Part 2!

Seasonal allergies kept me indoors.

Achoo-Achoo while sweeping the floors.


Tweeting held my attention for a second or two.

Unfortunately I had to report nothing new.


Rest and relaxation on the list for afternoon.

Day of laziness ending way too soon.


All tucked into my warm bed for the night.

You now have the reasons why I didn’t write.

      Lisa, Lisa, Lisa you better challenge your self to another nap my dear. thats why i don't do challenges and such they hurt you more than help you. they should be called "lets see who get burned out first". poetry is hard enough just trying to write anything. but it's your mind my dear. I will pray for your sanity to return to normal.

      Love you always

      Michael

      Michael, haha! I like the idea of another nap challenge! I'll definitely take that one on! I think I have too many interests going on right now, and writing is taking a backseat. I hate to say it, but it's true!

      Thank you for the comment and the prayers!

      Oh, and I got the idea to do an acrostic poem by reading one of yours! Thanks again!

      Sometimes we're all unsure of what will go on the blank page. But I like your excuses. It's like those times I look for inspiration by muttering head, said and so on...

      I'm going through it today; decided the world could function quite nicely if I don't post a hub tomorrow. I'm sure you will be back to your wonderful self soon. In the meantime, best wishes on the challenges.

      Gypsy, sometimes I can come up with ideas just by sitting around and doing nothing, but this weekend, it just didn't work! Thanks for the comment!

      Acrostic poems are quite a challenge, especially trying to find suitable rhymes, so there's something going at both ends of each line. You did well; it wasn't such a lazy day after all.
