“A writer is a person for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people.” – Thomas Mann

Today’s is a short post. Why? Because I am a writer and at times writing can be more difficult for me than it can be for other people. There’s a technical term for that – writer’s block. It is my nemesis, archenemy , foe, adversary (etc, etc… gotta love thesauruses.) So today, and recently, I have found little to write about. Perhaps it is the shortage of time or the abundance of stress in my life. Either way, I am itching to write, but it is like those dreadful itches in the middle of your back you can’t reach. I know, of course, what Jane Austen would have to say: “I am not at all in the humor for writing; I must write on till I am.” Three cheers for Jane! And I will go back to wallowing in shameful writer’s block…
