Default Dialog

I sit down at the writing desk, cluttered with unfamiliar objects.

Today has brought with it no new idea, no inspiration to draw upon. Instead as an exercise I decide to attempt some dialog. It is something of a weakness of mine, a blind spot of writing. Today I will attempt to write a little of it, even just a line.

As I contemplate how to get started my wife shouts up the stairs, asking if I would like a drink bringing up.

“No thanks, I’m fine” I reply, feeling ever so slightly ashamed of myself.

  1. Excellent take on writer’s block – we’ve all been there and many of us have written about it. Interesting thing is, everyone’s take is super good!

  2. I find a single latte works better than five cups of tea! … So pleased that you wrote about those days when we all have and fear.
