Hollywood on Writer's Block

Writer's Block II  

1. Gone With the Wind

Ten thousand words I didn't write yesterday.
Ten thousand words I should write today.
Ten thousand words I'll worry about tomorrow.

"After all, tomorrow is another day." ~Scarlett


2. Ground Hog Day

Gone with the wind.
Gone with the wind.
Gone with the wind.

"What if there is no tomorrow? There wasn't one today." ~Phil


3. The Matrix

I will write.
Write I will.   
Will I write? 

"Anything is possible." ~Neo

 
This post was written in response to this week's Carry On Tuesday prompt and as a contribution to dVerse Poets Pub Open Link Night. Drop by to join the fun and to see what others have written.

  3. if you call yourself a writer
    you will write, or just tell
    everyone you do at parties
    to get free drinks...haha...

    write every day.

  4. Nicely done. Tomorrow never arrives because when it does it's NOW. So whatever we DO it can only be done NOW. All three made me smile. :-)

  7. Very clever take on the movies ~ I sometimes worry what I will write tomorrow but it comes somehow ~

  8. I actually like the combination of these. There is a feeling to me of the wanna be writer's desire for procrastination. Of course I realize they are separate, but they work together.

  15. Easier said than done, to combat the absence of material to write about. I know there's always something to write about but sometimes the mind, at least mine, just goes blank.

    This is wonderful. Glad I found this page. I was directed to an earlier April post of yours from my blog. No matter, it was nice to read more than one.

  16. Very, very clever! You definitely explored 'tomorrow is another day' and you have to think about that in regard to poetic inspiration as well. When a poem is ready, it will come.
