27/31 Maybe Tomorrow Will Be Better



I keep starting this blog post

and then 

I delete everything I type

Nothing seems to go anywhere

Words don't come

Fingers seem to be typing nonsense.

There are no school stories, no grandkid stories, no Chloe stories

I'm sure they are there somewhere

But they are certainly hiding tonight

  1. Love this. I sit in front of my computer for at least 30 minutes a day doing the same thing. Sitting, waiting, typing, deleting.

  2. I kind of felt that last night (so I went to my "fall back" plan). Tonight, I'm not sure yet either. Sometimes the tiredness stops my brain from thinking clearly. I know the stories are there, but the words aren't coming out right. Tomorrow will be better. I know it. Because it's Friday!!!

  3. I love this post because I can absolutely relate to it. Sometimes I feel like I write too often about the weather and food, because at least those things happen every day so those stories are always there. Good luck tomorrow!

  5. I have to admit that I have felt this way a couple times during this challenge. Of course, my final post wasn't as eloquent, nor as picturesque. Very nice.

  6. There is a poem, "https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/321313-inside-this-pencil-crouch-words-that-have-never-been-written" Just for you-tomorrow!

  7. Many (if not all bloggers) can relate to the poem. Words are tricky and do not always cooperate. Yet, see, you wrote a poem.

  8. That was me last night as well. Terje said it well, words don't always cooperate! Maybe your word bank is in a better mood today.

  9. Can so relate! Somedays I have two or three posts I could write and some days, there just aren't any! Tomorrow will be better for sure!

  10. Your poem perfectly describes how I often feel when I open my laptop to write. I love how even when you were feeling kind of "blah" and felt like you had nothing to write, you still came up with a clever poem that so many people can resonate with!!

  11. And then there are the times when our fingers just seem to do their own thing and a story is written.

  12. Love this! Just ask my husband -- this has been the hardest year of the challenge for me yet. So many nights I haven't felt like writing. But doing it anyway certainly teaches us so many important lessons! :-)
