When Writer’s Block Knocks

Knock knock!

Who’s there?

Writer’s Block!

What do you do?

Do you answer the door?

I implore,

Don’t!

Take a step away.

Don’t let Writer’s Block sway

you from your destiny,

That of writing a great story!

You can do one of three things.

One, you can take

a break

from writing

until you find inspiration lighting

up like a lightbulb.

Knock knock!

Who’s there?

Writer’s block!

Go away!

Two, you can write

about Writer’s Block

and invite it in

to see what it was sayin'

before you slammed

the door shut and made it feel blamed!

Knock knock!

Who’s there?

Writer’s block!

Well, hi! Come on in.

Or three, write

just for writing’s sake!

What do you think?

Will you stink?

Doesn’t matter!

Not everything is open for online chatter.

You don’t have to share it,

Just write whenever you feel lit!

How are you feeling right now?

What’s on your mind?

What was the last thing you ate today

if you could write a review of what would be your way

of making it taste better?

No matter your internal chatter,

You don’t have to blather

it out loud,

But rather

keep it to yourself!

This will help you get

your creative juices flowing ever yet!

Knock knock!

Who’s there?

Writer’s Block!

Nobody’s home!

The end.
