    Never found a way around that ‘if I don’t do it, it don’t get done’ thing. I’ll keep you posted.

      It’s a real bind on that one, isn’t it? Can’t someone else write my stories for me, and just tell me when they’re done?

      Wait, there’s a word for that, isn’t there?

    This blog post is so incredibly good, Reesa (in part because I have some blank pages looking at me in surly accusation). I personally think you’re right; by holding that 20K carrot out for yourself, your Muse hit the road for a well-earned vaycay once you achieved it. Not only is that understandable; I suspect it might even be necessary after such a massive gushing of creativity (20K in a short time is no small feat). So, yeah. There is no such thing as writer’s block. Now that you’ve rested a bit, your Muse is back and he/she wants you to come out and play (probably with the otters). Have fun. 🙂

    I have this thing happen where I desperately want to write, but everything that I put down is wrong. Instead of something lyrical, I have things like:

    The brown wooden table was brown. And made of wood. The man sat in the brown wooden chair (it was brown. And wooden.) and ate. He ate food.

    “Hi,” his friend said.

    “Hi,” he said.

    I hate it so so much when that happens. Sometimes it’s a matter of switching projects (which is why I have so many of them); other times it’s simply a sign that I have to go do something else entirely or I’ll end up crying.

    I love the idea of Creativity Skeeball, though. It sounds like it has the potential to be very messy and very fun. *Grin*
