Act 1: The beginning.
I should write a thing. I always feel better when I write. And I have this idea to write about this stuff I care about.
Stop staring at me like that, page! I know I haven’t written anything yet. My words are a terrible mishmash in my head and they won’t come out.
Act 2: Rising action.
Seriously! Stop staring at me, page. I have written and deleted the same sentence worded 12 different ways. This is hard and terrible.
Don’t you judge me. You jerk.
Act 3: Procrastination.
I’m gonna have a glass of water. Then I’ll be back to deal with you.
Act 4: Determination.
You see me cracking my knuckles? That’s because I’m going to knock this whole writing thing right out of the park.
Act 5: Denial.
How long has it been since I started writing? I must have been at this for hours.
Guhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I will never have a thought or idea AGAIN.
Act 6: Procrastination deux.
Well. Now that the laundry is done and my kitchen is clean and I’ve dusted all my shelves, I can really get this writing out of the way!
Act 7: Overwhelming the enemy.
I’m just going to keep writing whatever comes to mind until I get to my writing goal for today. You can’t stop me, page! You don’t even have any arms!
Act 8: End game.
Not blank anymore, are you, page? How do you like that? Ha!
I’m gonna go make a sandwich.
