It's a terrible thing when words won't flow and, lately, I have found this issue to be quite disturbing. The ability to express my feelings/thoughts in written form has helped me through many a tough time and has saved me from saying something incorrectly (as I'm often known to do). To lose that gift would be devastating to me. So, today I decided I needed to reclaim my words. I decided that this could best be accomplished by locating the origin of the mental block: my brain. Good, I was making headway already. Now that I understood where the problem was, I simply needed to isolate it and destroy,but how?

Option 1: Drink Alcohol
Killing some of my unneeded brain cells seemed a clever solution to the problem. It could loosen me up; help those creative juices flow. Then again I didn't want to destroy my brain (contrary to popular belief: I do use it, sometimes), and besides the thought of me drunk is just scary, so?

Option 2: Attempt Writing A Song
Maybe I just needed to exercise my writing ability. I usually write pretty good lyrics, so I thought that trying this might help:

Verse1: Another day meets me
The sun to greet me
Will I just let it all go by?

Okay, that sucked. Moving on?

Option 3: Attempt Writing A Children's Book

Page1: Another day meets me and the sun greets me.
Illustration: Sun with smiley face and speech bubble saying "Hello!"

I decided it best to stop there. All options had failed, miserably. Suddenly, something sparked inside me and I realized that solution I had been looking for was in front of me the whole time:

Option 4: Write A Musing For on Conquering Writer's Block

After it's completion, I'm still not sure if I'm entirely cured. I'm not even sure if the musing was a success, after all, it was probably just my incoherent rambling about not finding anything coherent to write. The only thing that I'm sure of at this point is that Option 1 is starting to sound better all the time, especially to whoever had to read this.

Haha, very nice...
I hope some of those methods work... although I know others on this site would be more than willing to try option one, having read your musing or not. Creatively written, though. Nicely done.

Very nice. Creative and Original! What else would would we expect? Seriously I found it cute. It had a very nice tone to it. Props for making me feel good!
