A Blank Page

If you’ve ever been a kid in school, then you know this feeling . . .

Your assignment was to write a “composition”, or a poem, or a short story.

Naturally, you wanted it to be interesting – maybe even clever!

The blank page before you was hypnotizing.

As you gazed upon it, things went out of focus.

The more you tried to think of what to write, the tougher it was to begin.

The clock kept ticking, ticking, ticking…



That’s just about where I am right now.

I’ll try again tomorrow! 😉

(Topic suggestions are always welcome.)



I’ve Got Nothing

I really don’t!


You have to be kidding, Crystal!

Nothing to say? You?

I’m serious.

But aren’t you the kid who has written over 500 posts???

550 to be exact.

And you’re saying you couldn’t think of anything for today?

That’s right.

Well, listen here, Missy! Your assignment for tomorrow is to snap out of it and return with a good idea for the next post!

Okey-dokey, I will. 😉
