All Quiet In My Mind

Just like everyone else, I don't like being told what to do or being held accountable for things.

So right now in my life I'm blessed with wonderful people who love me and mean well. They are blessing me with accountability.

And now I feel it.

It feels like at every turn I'm hearing from someone, so, how's the writing? It has even become an annoying mental nag in my mind.

Today has been a day filled with phone calls, shoveling and driving to drop off and pick up various children. My bits of time have been pretty small, but I'm sure I could still have dumped a few hundred words easily.

Instead, I'm doing what I've been doing since everyone got on their accountability. I'm looking at blank screens and blank paper. I'm walking around my house, looking out windows and finding my mind blank.

I pretty much always have something to say and typically I can't find enough time to come close to writing all the stuff that's rolling around in my mind. I'm that person always making a note about a thought and tucking it away.

I know, start reading and you'll get some thoughts going again. I have a stack waiting for me. Somehow, I just can't seem to get past a page or two before I'm back to the blank mind.

I'm not used to this weird quiet place without words. I'm hoping it doesn't last long.
