About That Proverbial Writers Block
There is that so-called writers block--
it’s just another term for “fear”
of failing to write that first draft
on any subject you hold dear.
My sage advice is simply this:
just tap the keys, and then reject
the bulk of words that cover up
a germ one sees in retrospect.
As I’ve said, there’s no such thing as
“writers block.” Don’t twiddle idle thumbs
or wait for so-called inspiration--
the muse that often never comes.
I say that if you still can’t write
because the fickle muse won’t bite,
then fill the page with oodles
of scribbles and more doodles.
