Wondering if my words are ever coming back...
relishing the day when I can put more than a stanza together. Finding the
irony of this acrostic with every line I produce...
Tepid feelings over the whole process, wondering if
eventually I will actually, no
really write with my heart bleeding out,
staining the pages with ink and blood...
Blocks upon blocks of words, damming my thoughts, not
out creative processes
clogging my conscious stream of creativity, creating havoc, chaos...
keeping me off kiltered and utterly unsettled...
I love this Brenda and I think it speaks to all of us. I especially related to the last part about how the creative block feels very unsettling, especially when you're so used to your creativity flowing. I'd say this is a damm good start with the unblocking process though and with a tricky acrostic at that! :-) x
It always fascinates me to see people writing about writer's block! As you acknowledge yourself, there is an irony in it but I know it's not quite that simple. Writer's block is only one subject, and penning our thoughts about it doesn't necessarily open the floodgates. However, it's a start and I reckon this form is as good a place to begin as any.
Great to see something new from you, Brenda.
