The closer I want to be in a relationship, the more distant I become. Am I the only one with this problem?
Before you gasp and think, “Oh no, marital problems”, I want to assure you it is not that relationship that is in jeopardy. My relationship with my keyboard has changed. I want so badly to place my fingers gently across A S D F J K L ; and watch them do their magic and write like I have never written before. But I cannot get my brain to work in conjunction with my fingers. I am experiencing writer’s block and I found my hands idle in the darkness of my pockets.
My empty thoughts may be the result of winter hibernation. I cannot even write about how pretty the snow is outside because we unseasonally do not have any. I am not complaining, I am merely struggling for a breakthrough.
Heaven help me work through my writer’s block. I made a commitment for a special writing assignment and people are depending on me. I can neither get my mind to create, nor can I get my hands out of my pockets.
You are an intelligent audience and I can hear your question, “But you just wrote this piece, why can’t you write for your assignment?” Well, I pecked like a chicken with my nose on the keyboard to write this.
Lord willing, my mind will wake and my hands will see the light of day and gently sit upon A S D F J K L ; and we will perform our magic once again. I do not want to let anyone down.
Oh dear keyboard, it's not you, it's me.
