The Writer's Plight
For some, the writer's plight may be staring at a blank page, fear of rejection, or resistance presented in various forms. For me, the writer's plight is being available morning, noon, and night to welcome a steady stream of pop-in visitors with expectations of providing conversation, cooking, cleaning, even childcare for hours on end.
With a Mona Lisa smile, I weigh the importance of what my drama queen muse is impatiently waiting to say and my introversion with being present for family and friends that will too soon blend into the fabric of life, leaving behind faded memories. The latter always wins, sometimes causing my muse to vanish in a green haze, leaving behind a putrid air of martyr residue, worthy of a Razzie.
Such is the writer's plight, which is why I often write by moonlight after most of my drama-inducing world is fast asleep, plotting tomorrow's test of my priorities!
