Writer's Block


Empty mind

Naked limb

Creative light

A little dim...


Blank page

Looking on

Wooden hand

Muse gone...


Dark clouds

Release rain

Jumbled words

Scattered train...


Clearing skies

Colors bright,

Gripping pen

Love’s delight...


Blood flowing

Flesh reborn

Thoughts turning

Quiet morn...


Wood broken

Shattered dry

Flow returns

By and by.

This is another Magpie Tale; a creative writing challenge.


(got a chuckle reading the comments @ Magpie Tales on this one...

glad I wasn't the only one whose mind was blank ...initially ;-) )

HA! I'm always ready the little print before the big. I was going to comment that this sounds exactly like writer's block and then saw the title. Great job.

And you turned writer's block into amazing writing. Most of us go and clean the cooker :)

Brian Miller said...

there is a nice cadence to this as you progress from nothing to definitely something...nicely done magpie!

Peter Goulding said...

Ah, couldn't get inspiration from the prompt, so write about struggling with the Muse!! I did the same thing! But yours is better!

VERY clever way to tie the title into the photo and represent your initial "block". But you weren't blocked at all!! Great representation!

Thanks for visiting me!

Very clever and a twist that I would never have thought of.

I love this! Great job. Sometimes Willow gives us some pretty tough prompts, doesn't she! I love the way that you tell a story with very few words. They convey the point so succinctly and yet it doesn't take many words to get the point across. Bravo!
