Shooting Blanks.

20130107-232049.jpg
Mudo. For the past couple of days I’ve been just that. Silent. Unable. Unwilling perhaps. To say much of anything at all. Every time I’ve tried to sit down and think about writing something cohesive, or at the very least putting a few words together that made any kind of sense at all -“good enough” to share with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, this website, and by extension with you – I’ve just come up with …nothing.

Not a damn thing at all.

Why? I haven’t the slightest clue. But that’s just where I’m at right now.

I guess you could say I’m shooting blanks. I’m 33 years old, going on 34, and I’m shooting blanks!

  1. don’t feel bad. you’re just processing.

    at least you can articulate that you just need a moment. what happens to me is my husband asks me something and i stand there opening and closing my mouth but nothing comes out. he says i look like a dying fish.

  2. I hear you, Juan. I struggle with writer’s block constantly. I think it’s why I run and dance. I need some kind of outlet. Your words will come back. At least you’re articulating how you’re feeling.

    1. You know, Julie, I think that may be what my body is telling me… that I need more exercise in my life. I know it and probably need to do something already. Thanks for the reminder.
