But at least I can always be overly dramatic, right?
So I'm cheating. Sort of. I googled "writing prompts" and found zillions of websites. (yes, zillions. I counted.) These sites give me (or third graders, whatever) ideas of things to write about, like for a response journal or something.
So I'm going back to "school", and I'm giving myself an assignment every day to write something brought on by one of these writing prompts. And my soul will fill up and blossom or something, and I will have thoughts in my head and itchy fingers to type them down. And then, even if I don't have anything brilliant (or even coherent) to add to my WIP, at least I'm writing. Much like my kids are doing at school, but without the gum-smacking and contraband iPods.
