You know when the word you want to say is on the tip of your tongue but you can't think of it, much less say it, if your life was dependent on it? That is how I feel after weeks of mind-numbing blankness.
When I write, it's as if I'm putting together a jigsaw puzzle. I dump all the pieces out onto the table and start flipping them over, separating the edge pieces on the side. Lately a few of those pieces must have tumbled way underneath the couch of my mind. Until I find them I cannot continue with my writing puzzle.
It's times like this I wish I could be as relaxed as my dogs are. Yes, they get excited or stressed at times, but they have the ability to change gears instantly. Perhaps it's because their little puppy brains do not know any other way to be. If I could control my thought process that way, it would be wonderful tool. Maybe if I slept on the couch or chased rabbits in the backyard with them for the day. Hmmm....
It will get better (God, I hope it gets better.) Think creative thoughts for me and if you have a suggestion, question, please fire away!
