Write Where You Started From
Many people write to me about writer's block.
They hate it when the urge to write drops off in the middle of a novel or a non-fiction book or a screenplay, even during a short story.
They worry about what that means. Are they really a writer? Has the Muse deserted them? Or is it symptomatic of some more serious psychological issue?
Some writers worry about stopping even before it happens to them.
A recipe for disaster if ever there was one.
Biorythmn Merry-Go-Round: Written by; Gary Powers
A biorythmn merry-go-round,
A roller coaster ride of waves.
The highs and lows of feelings felt,
Dependent on which day.
The fervent swings of moods you have
From one extreme then back,
Unable to choose the path you take,
Not sure of how you'll act.
Good spirits or sour grapes,
It's seldom inbetween.
A searching, driving, unseen force
That guides each move you make.
How is it that this curving line,
With it's valleys and it's hills,
Mandate every move you'll make
Before the time has spilled?
Could it be the shaded moon,
Each quarter has it's own
