That kind of thing. Mental, creative procrastination. Meanwhile, nothing is written.
So, I have an idea. Yet another, true, but I like this one. Inspired by Tam's post, but also a line from Matt Mikalatos' book Imaginary Jesus:
"You're so afraid of your imagination," Pete said. "You never use it for good things because you're worried you'll end up imagining something pornographic. You need to get control of yourself. The imagination can be purified like any other part of you."And the fact that I still owe Mom a birthday present from January, and promised Dad a painting for his which was last week. And I stand at the art closet dreading any pending creativity. Then I thought of it the idea, I mean. Mom's going to be getting a bit of a selfish (to me) present... but then again, being a parent myself, it might be exactly what she would have asked for, had she even known she wanted it. :-)
More as it unfolds and I make sure I don't cop out.
Accountability. It works. If you take it seriously.

I need to break out, I need to build words, need to use my talents as it were. Songs like this one just speak to my heart, my yearning to create. I haven't written a single word in 2 years. Trying to break out, but I just sit. so many things I want to write. I'll start with this, sharing the wall which I built in my way, here and, in effect, start writing. See what happens.

A faithful reader and fallen writer who yearns for that joy to return.
