There is no Cure

This picture of a homemade pizza was brought to you by writer’s block.

076

No compensation was received for this post, but a pizza was decimated for dinner.

Writer’s block is a serious affliction affecting most bloggers at some point. No writer or blogger is immune. There is no known cure. Vaccines have been tested to no avail and home remedies consisting of anything from scotch on the rocks to hot baths in candlelight are inconsistently effective.

This serious and debilitating condition has resulted in bloggers posting countless pictures of their kids, cute pets, dandelions, feet, laundry, and sometimes homemade pizza. Those suffering the severest cases resort to writing shameful posts about how they have nothing to write about. The results are not pretty and readers have a difficult time leaving comments on posts that are about having nothing to write about, which is I guess a way of transmitting this horrid disease to the general public.

Warning: This post may be contagious! (I probably should have told you that at the beginning.)

    I heard some of the best writing comes when the spirit moves you so I thought I would help the spirit move with more spirits like rum.  Maybe the spirit is moving but now I can’t.

    I agree. Sometimes posts come so easy and other times there’s NOTHING.

    No. Not pretty. Not pretty at all.

    Oh, I’m not talking about the pizza, I am talking about posts on writer’s block. Although we have all done it.

    When I get writers block I go people watching somewhere for awhile.  It’s always a little inspiring. LOL.
    Now I need pizza. Thanks for that.
    Hope all is well and those little ones are healthy and strong.
    All the best,
    Tina

    just to let you know, i’m re-following you thru GFC again.  tried using a feed as i maxed out my ‘blogs i follow’ at 300.  didn’t like it so am now using google reader which allows me to sign up on your follower block again.

      And here I just thought you were being fickle. I totally understand. I like Google Reader and started using it when I was on Blogger. It made it easy to use GFC to add things to my reader.
