Writer's Block: A Prose Poem

Updated on April 28, 2014

I have a dozen incomplete stories on my lap top and a dozen more incomplete stories in my head. For most of them I have the plot all thought through but it's all for naught as my writer's block won't let me come through. I know it may seem ironic to I say I have this catatonic when I'm obviously writing this to you. Nevertheless, it's totally true. So I thought I'd write about writer's block and see if it would do.

I believe it is important to come up with a solution to unblocking this curse. Perhaps I should take some laxatives (before attempting to write verse), I think that should do. Or maybe I could watch a scary movie where they scream "Boo!" That would unblock me too. Although as clever as those schemes may seem, I believe they'll only be good for number two. (That is code for "poo".)

Maybe I should go out and find a muse, rather than giving up and drinking booze. We could go on a romantic cruise. Maybe then, out from my pen, will my creative thoughts ooze.

I know! I'll get a stick of dynamite and with a match I might... No, that would just blow me out of sight.

The more I am thinking, the more my hopes are sinking, on what I should write. Just like the sun sinks and it turns to night, I am starting to realize my plight: Even if I stay up all night I will have nothing which I can write and thus I will have met my fright.

But wait! This night has turned to dawn as it has dawned on me that -- with this little spout, I have with no doubt, unlocked that which before had me blocked.

Thank you and good night.
Tomorrow promises me new light.

      What you should do is just sit down and write. Simple as that. Don't worry if what you're writing is good, bad or indifferent; just write. You'll find your block will then disappear. Trust me. Lynda
