I face rebellion

The words stall and stutter.

They sidle onto the page so stubbornly and sullenly. They shift and squirm and slip from my uncertain grasp.

They twist and turn and tangle themselves up in tortured, tedious, threadbare tales.

They distract me. They defy me. They disobey me.

I face rebellion

My words have made a stand.

The only shape

they will make

is you.

    I know the feeling. I love when writers write about writing, or the inability to write. It somehow removes the hurtle, for me anyway. Nicely done.

      Smiles. A touch of schadenfreude almost. Thank you

        I think I was unclear…when I write about not being able to write it helps me. When others write similarly I enjoy what they write.

    Sometimes a little ‘chaos’ brings order.
