six word fridays: novel


alas – for this Six Word Fridays
i have nothing novel to say

a simple truth i can’t escape
creativity is zapped – empty of words

sounds like a cop out, yes
one i don’t mean to use

i have turned through my thoughts
sifted through experiences – real and imagined

and can only find crumpled ideas
today, nothing inspiring springs to mind

would you forgive me this confession
just this once? i hope so

i’m plain old brain tired today

    Oh Mel, I felt the same way this week! All dried up. That’s why I decided to use the prompt as a more life inspiration.

    But I didn’t say it as eloquently as you. I would read anything you have to say.

    Mel, it happens to all of us. Your confession is honest and vulnerable – you have my support 🙂

    Confronting the blank screen without ideas
    is a brave thing to do.

    I’ve been feeling that way quite a bit lately. “Crumpled ideas”-exactly!

  5. Melissa

    Expressed so eloquently! Brains need rejuvenation.

    Well done for being so tired 🙂

    Said a lot for not having anything to say. 🙂 and so well put.

    Ah, clever. Some days, it sure seems like everything’s been said before.
