forcing myself through writer's block
i’ve found that whenever i am stuck and force myself to write i begin with the same phrase: here i sit. today’s sentence was: here i sit in a foreign room with orange walls and a vase of dead flowers - wondering why some people are idiots. i think i like that phrase so much because i can use it in different ways. it could be literal, like todays or it could be used to refer to a...
