What can I say… I have a problem. I admit it. I go weak in the stomach. I tremble… I’m a nut case. I’m… blaaaahhhh! Eeeeek!
I’m scared of… writing prompts. (*falls to the ground in gut wrenching agony, her brain in turmoil*)
As a gift to support my passion for writing, my family gifted me a wonderful journal jam packed full of amazing prompts. The prompts were very nicely set up per page… 100 pages. Ugh! I could so be having fun doing them. Right? No! That was a while back. It’s still blank, hiding in my closet. Shhhh! Don’t tell anyone! Ugh! What? You say what I’m doing now is a prompt. No! It’s not a prompt because I came up with it myself and I didn’t have the pressure of someone or thing slapping me in the face with it! I’m not going to lie. I have butterflies in my stomach right now.
OMG!! Okay. Deep breath… I was going to attempt to do a prompt… right now. But you know what? I can’t. I’m not ready. I don’t know why my brain is wired like this. I just… Some of you might be cringing right now and rolling your eyes and thinking… She’s so weird! Yessssss! I am weird. I’m weird and crazy and who knows what else! I just can’t do prompts. Except… I have to get over this! I just get all nervous and freaky. I want to do them I just… Eeeeek!
I’m literally shaking just thinking about it. No joke, I’m shaking my left knee right now, fidgeting. I don’t know why they make me so nervous. I have attempted prompts suggested in other blogs. Just counted my saved documents from the numerous times I tried. I have fourteen blank documents. I saved them because I thought I would get back to them. I haven’t been able to. I tried just now to write from one. I couldn’t. I just kept staring at the blank page with the title cacophonously looking back at me. Very noisy in my head! But that’s all. Not inspirational, not dreamy, not anything to me! Why? I mean… it’s just a word or a phrase or even a picture. But you add that it’s a prompt… forget it!
I need to go throw up now. I really don’t know if there is anything that can be done about this. If you have ideas, I’m pretty sure you’ll let me know. I mean it’s a free blogosphere. You’re free to speak your mind after all. I’m just a freak. I guess. What the hell?
Let me close this horror now. I’m literally still shaking a bit. Now to the music! Quick!
A shout out to the witty and super talented Michael and his Afterwards. I came to know him through Linda. I came to know Linda through the GODDESS. (Aww… the GODDESS brings everyone together.) Anyway! He’s got a thing for Prince, as do I. This is my favorite treasure by Prince and will certainly take my mind off prompts cause I think I like his prompt better. I love the song’s quirky sexiness and the video… well… You feeling it Michael? (*wink*)
Thank you so much for reading and listening.
