I Can't Seem To Write

Do you ever go through periods where you just feel overwhelmed? Blah? Can't seem to "get it together"? Concentration is elusive? Well, I'm having one of those days. It actually started last night. I feel sort of helpless in the midst of this. I don't like this feeling.

1. The list in my head keeps growing.

2. Things I need to do.

3. Things I want to do.

4. And yet, I don't want to think about my list.

5. I need to do more laundry.

6. I should do my daily house cleaning.

7. I just want to watch TV.

8. Normally, I don't even like to watch a lot of TV.

9. What is the matter with me today?

10. My brain hurts.

11. I feel like I should be doing something.

12. Something impressive.

13. Something original.

14. Something meaningful.

15. And yet...here I sit.

16. No energy.

17. A headache.

18. Desire with no drive.

19. I don't like this feeling.

20. Not one bit.


  1. I just got done with the writing OGT.

    Now I'm sitting in a random classroom waiting for 10:20 so they'll let us go.

    Hi mom.

  2. I have those kind of days A LOT. Which is why I sometimes disappear from my blog for a week at a time ... and sit there all jealous like of those (like you) who can even write about "not writing" and still have the post be interesting! :-)

  3. Like Kelly commented, I think it's amazing that you can write about not being able to write.

  4. Found this post through the 'lack of concentration' tag... snap! I've just had one of those days. It's no fun at all.
