When I can’t write, I cry.
Writing is how I deal with pent-up emotions and problems. I usually write and cover up the dark things with humor and sarcasm. However, when I can’t write, I cry.
When I can’t write, it means that the darkness has covered every inch of me and my words, like a devastating storm cloud covers a city. I try to write. I try to get the words out, but everything is tainted by the darkness. Sadness lingers on my tongue and drips off of every word I pen.
When I can’t write, my words are sad. My words cry out for help, but are usually snuffed out by my overwhelming anger. When the words don’t come, the pity party does. I get down on myself. My negative self-esteem hits an all-time high and I become the worst EVERYTHING in the world.
Can you see it? Can you see the drips of disdain and self-loathing?
No, you usually won’t, because those words don’t make it out of the draft folder very often. Hell, they rarely leave the brain that they were born in.What do you do when you can't write?Click To Tweet
