A Conversation with My Writer Self
[Scratching head. Bulging eyes staring at the blank screen.]
Write about the ordinary.
Write about the little things.
Just write and write.
I know, I know. But I don't know what to write.
[Shoulder shrug. Clicking fingertips on the keyboard.]
Open your writer's notebook.
Search for an idea, a seed, a spark.
Let it grow, ignite and you will write.
My writer's notebook?
Oh, that little book that has been
ignored? Unattended? Left blank?
[Digging and searching for my notebook.]
Live the life of a writer.
Ideas breathe all around you every day.
In and out. In and out.
I know. I know.
[Dusting the notebook off. Cracking it open as if it hasn't been opened in years.]
It's time to revive the notebook.
Open your eyes and ears to your world
that's waiting to be captured and shared.
I know what to write about today.,
but first, let me write down a few ideas.
[Bringing my writer's notebook back to life.]
