Of Writer’s Block

This post has been brought to you by writer’s block, and a lovely evening at an acoustic music session at The Old Anchor.  I quite often end up writing here…when I can that is! It’s not for a want of ideas I can assure you. Please let me know what you think and as always, enjoy!

 

Of Writer’s Block
I want to write of falconry,
And literary critique.
Of mystery cats with stumpy tails,
For ideas I need not seek.
 
I want to write of new friendships,
And limping down a mountain.
Of adventuring in foreign climes,
I’m a veritable idea fountain.
 
I wanted to write for the past year,
And would sit with pen in hand.
Of ideas I wasn’t lacking,
But they wouldn’t come out as planned.
 
I want to keep on writing,
And end this long hiatus.
Of writer’s block no one’s a fan,
It always conspires to frustrate us.

That last verse is being a pain still, but it’s so nice to get something down rather than have a hundred ideas and a hundred blank pages because they won’t transfer.

Writers block – new challenges – Occily Diddily

I know it has been a ridiculously long time since I last posted anything, unfortunately, although I have dozens of ideas, not one is making it to paper.  Writers block has hit in the past, but usually wears off eventually, and I’m hoping that this does.  But whilst this door is temporarily closed, it seems a new one has opened as I’m starting learning to compose music.  Haven’t progressed beyond simple little tunes yet, but  wanted to share one of my favourites so this site wasn’t completely dead.  I hope to return to poetry one day, and as soon as I do, it will be up here.

As always, please let me know what you think in the comments here or on YouTube, and feel free to share it with people if you wish.  I’m still learning (both the instrument and composition) though, so advice is appreciated!
