Writer's Blo....ADD

I can not honestly say I have writers block at the moment. Rather there are so many other things going on that I forget what I was about to write about, and can't seem to recover it. I'm not over exaggerating either. Today, I was laying in the hammock under the vines and kiwi trees, writing for my novel. My main character was just about to say something completely witty and cynical, which is something she rarely wants to do out loud. Just as I was putting pen to paper, a butterfly flew by. It was so pretty. It was yellow and black, big and graceful. I watched it fly and flutter around me and felt the breeze across my face. BAM! I lost what my character was going to say and now she does not have the desire to say it again. NO! UGH! COME ON GIVE ME A BREAK! IT WAS A PRETTY BUTTERFLY!

Deep breaths, I know.

I surely can not be the only one that experiences this headache. You could put me in a dull room with no windows and I probably would still find a way to get distracted. Must. Stay. Focused. However not too focused because that is boring and I will lose all inspiration.
Oh this is inanity.

Stay Calm, and Drink Tea - Ali


  1. Yup.

    I know the feeling. =/ Keep strong, butterfly chaser.

  2. Been there... way too many times than I would like to admit. :) I attempt to keep pressing on. You girls are inspirational.
