My Words are Lost






Inspired by the WordPress Daily Prompt Survival-

My words are caught in a net, this month. The net of life-and it’s stifling my ability to create.

I love to write, the urge to splash stories and thoughts onto the blank screen remains annoyingly-this is how I would describe it-in tact. Why annoying? Because they are like a yawn that desperately wants to come out, but just won’t. So I bide my time, enduring the discomfort, hoping, they will eventually flow forth, and not disappear for an eternity.

Perhaps I am not sad enough? Or perhaps I am too distracted, or too tired, or my bucket is full, with no room to ponder and dream.

The solution?

I will sit in this little chair of mine whilst sipping sweet coffee and listening to the shhhh of the breeze in my trees, outback.

I will listen to the sweet song of the bird that’s saturating the air- it is dancing elegantly with it’s words and thoughts in this moment. It’s words are not stuck in the same binding net as mine, so I will keep quiet, for a little longer, and simply listen.

See you on the flip side, my dear writing friends.

May you fill in the gaps…on my behalf.

  1. Oh Nicole, your words are not lost, they’re just hiding temporarily. And they’ll come out when you least expect them to. As the song goes, let it flow … 🙂

  2. Nicole, I don’t think you need to be sad to be able to write! I think sitting quietly, just listening, taking in nature and all that is around you to make you feel rooted in your ‘being’ is good enough. The Muse will be back 🙂

    1. Thank you ‘written live’-You are right. I feel my lack of quiet time in a world of routine and rush is eating into my creative mind. I guess the key is to make time…or perhaps be still as they say in between the noise…however for me, the distractions of demands, leaves no time for writing. Any tips?

      1. Nicole, it is wonderful that you understand the need to be ‘still’. I believe that when life is very busy, taking just a few minutes to do something that engrosses us completely does the trick. If even that is not possible, then practising mindfulness brings the mind to a calm and focussed state. Try it!


  3. That’s how I felt the other day. May you listen until the creative being that you are gets a jolts and puts you back on the path of writing.
