I had initially thought that I was going to have this super productive night, as I’d had a mildly productive week. Read more “Woo. Tonight has sucked.”
A hot subject in the writing world, writer’s block. In fact, it’s probably the hottest topic around.
Why? Because you either believe in it, or you don’t. What do I think? The complicated pile is behind the cut.

Flowers usually, but here in Memphis, April showers bring May floods.
I’ve been very busy this past month, and I haven’t managed to get anything done for “me”. This past month has kind of sucked, and it almost got a whole lot worse. As I sit here in my favorite corner of a favorite store surrounded by friends, I just about had a major meltdown.
My much beloved Alienware machine wasn’t booting up at all. I had power through the cord, partial power in the battery, and when I hit the power button, NOTHING HAPPENED. I counted to fifteen. NOTHING STILL. I hit the button again, and STILL NOTHING. So I got up and asked if the tech wiz was going to be coming in today, and they said yes. I relaxed one degree. I commented to people that I was going to have a major meltdown if I couldn’t get my computer to boot. Then I returned to my corner, flipped her over again, took out the battery and put it back in. Then turned Alien back upright, and opened the lid. I hit the power button again. HOLY WORD. LIGHTS!!!! Alien started to boot up then. And announced that she hadn’t shut down properly to begin with.
Guess who is now going to wait until the laptop is completely powered off before she closes it again. This morning scared the all and holy hells outta me. (By the way, after my scare, I lose a bit of my language filter, so be aware the are a few instances of ‘foul’ language from here on)
Anyways, there is a reason for me posting about this. Beyond the obvious, I need to get it off my chest, sort of deal. Why, you ask? Because it brings up a major point that writers need to remember!
