Writer's Lobotomy

I finished my paper edit yesterday and began the rewrite today. Eventually the 1000 word limit was reached but it was a painful process.

Not so much writer's block than writer's lobotomy - I could visualise what I wanted to write but the words would not come to me.

Luckily I work alone otherwise I'd have been sent home with a doctor's note for waving my hands in the air and babbling to myself. "Material. A floral material. Bobbly, raised, hairbrushy feel. What the hell am I on about? Arrghhh..." *Clutches head dramatically*

On days like this one I long for mind-reading software. Or failing that, a large cocktail.

Oh my God, mind-reading software would be awesome!

It could be sold with a half-price cattle-prodding software that gives us a kick up the bum too?

Hilarious, I know exactly what you mean.

Glad you got there in the end though.

A large cocktail is the answer - regardless of the question x

Yvonne said...

Jen, or perhaps an electronic foot that does the job? Could do with that sometimes.

Debs, it's a right pain.

Helen, wise words!

Oh I hate that feeling, but your description made me chuckle. :)

Angie, it's an occupational hazard!
