This blank screen overwhelms me today. The cursor blinks – write – write – write – write
My list of numbered ideas is uninspiring.
Some days are like this.
The brain runs through possibilities and the writer shoots each one down.
The kids? No.
Yesterday’s work in third grade? Nope.
The halfway point of March Slicing? Nah.
And now I feel silly for doing the “I don’t know what to write about” slice.
Is it too early to be out of ideas?
No, it’s not.
It’s just that no small moments will come to my mind, none seem worthy.
Today needs to be about paying attention, being more mindful, slowing down.
Today needs to be about having my writer’s notebook by my side.
And if the blank screen is too much, I will fill a single post-it note.
