Writer's Block... Writer's Block... Writer's Block...
That's what I imagine muttering all day if I were a writer with, well... writer's block. Good news, then. I am not a writer. I'm a... hmmm. I don't know what I am, but I do know who I am. I am someone's wife, mother, daughter, sister, auntie, friend. Jeepers, that does sound very much like what you'd find on a gravestone, doesn't it? *shudder* Actually, I'm not even sure if that friend one applies. I see no friends.
Let's see... I guess I could say I'm a car singer, a food eater, a movie watcher, a typist, an imagineer - no, I think that's a Disney thing. So, let's say, imaginer, goer-of-when-things-get-tough, a sayer (Is that even a word?) of, "What you think about, you bring about." A maker-up of words. Oh yeah, I've always thought myself an "idea person." Problem. All these great ideas come to me when I'm either driving, in the shower, or doing something which does not allow me to take the time to make notes, draw sketches, or do research. For instance, I have an idea for a design to assist individuals who use walkers. I have some ideas for jewelry design. Oh, something else I've always wanted to do is create a suitable-for-everyone program about.... hmmm. Sorry, my secret.
There are things I'd like to learn, like, play guitar, piano, drums! I wish I were a good singer. I'd love to be in a play - my "acting career" ended in the sixth grade. I had so much fun doing school plays. I loved to dance, and wish I had done ballet.
See, now I've gotten all wishy. I'm a dreamer; a feeler.
I want to be a writer, but the only way I could see that happening is doing it as part of a team. So, I don't much get writer's block, it's more like writer's lonelies. Is that a word?
