Care and Feeding of The Weary Writer

lingering fear this is only a reprieve. That it’s short lived. That I could relapse and not be able to again write freely

This is where I’d spill my guts and tell you my deepest darkest fears.

Confession 1: My writing is at a low point, and I am in a flat panic


We all get to that place occasionally ... and it helps to know there's a way out of that deepest, darkest fear

Good words for tired writers. :) Also ... *snigger, chuckle, great big belly laugh* ;)

Sorry, but for a second there I had a Freudian slip moment when I read that first quote. Instead of "lingering fear", for a second I thought it said "lingerie fear". :roll: :lol:

Not necessarily. Weary eyes get bleary, and then weary minds think "Surely that couldn't have said that..."
