    Clever. Some think Merriwether Lewis offed himself because of a severe case of writer’s block.

    Happy Mute Monday!

    Are all those ripples in the paper from crying face down on the writing pad? I guess it’s a picture of a would be author. Grrrhahahaha

    Thanks for all of the feedback, everyone. This one threw me for a loop until Sunday morning. I threw a Lomo effect on there, and I was really happy with the results.

    Yeah, I get this, too. Usually, it leads to an overly clean house. Happy MM and thanks for dropping by Moi’s blob!

    I LOVE this one. Most days, this is what my head feels like. Happy (empty) Mute Monday!

    Thanks, everyone.

    Yeah, I tend to get stuck in writer’s block often, usually a result of me being hypercritical of things that I haven’t even written yet. A friend of mine who is an English professor at La Salle University told me about a technique called “Draft Zero”, where you write something and then go back and pretty much rewrite everything. It tends to work.

    …or I get a real clean house as well, lol.
