You’ve watched all of The Wire – Season Four that you bought with your Borders voucher (chur Ash). There’s no more of The Shield until next week. The toilet’s clean and sparkly. You’ve been for a run, and The Dog, at least, is happy.
Time to write.
This is worse than starting with a blank page – most times I bring up a blank screen, I’ve an idea of what I’m writing. No, this is when you have to pick up from where you last left off – a day, a week, a month, or years ago.
You’ve had some time-out, right? You’re refreshed! You’re raring to go! Bring it on!
Except… the last CUT TO: sneers at you from it’s right-alignment: And then what happens, sparky?
You open a NeoOffice window and your fingers, previously frozen, erupt onto the keyboard:
How did s/he die? S/he did the right thing.
And what was that? S/he stepped up. S/he took a stand. S/he took a chance (and lost – but the point is that s/he backed hirself).
Anything specific? … Nothing comes to mind.
You don’t know, really, do you? … Nope.
How’s your Christmas shopping going?
