It is a cold and gloomy Friday morning, which, to tell you the truth, does not inspire writing much yet I feel that it has been a while since I last wrote anything so I think I owe it to you and to myself some “entertainment”!
You see the problem with “writers” (yes, I do consider myself one!), is that every once in a while they get what they call “a writer’s block”, it is when you either have nothing to write about and you lose your muse, or you have no way of expressing the many things you can write about!!
I am currently experiencing the second one!
I do go to work every day from 9:30 till 6 , 7 or even 8 and I do around a million thing each day such as going to my already scheduled meetings, setting up new ones, some marketing here, some editing there, some translation here and there, some follow ups, etc.
During this long and usually exhausting day, many small incidents inspire me to write:
The little girl selling chewing gum in the rain, at the traffic lights.
The starring grocer right who is always situated next to the entrance of the building.
The man driving by with his mobile phone in one hand while the other hand is clenching on to a cigarette!
All those people going somewhere: university, work, home, etc.
My colleagues and how humble they are.
The cab drivers who once are quiet and keep to themselves and some other time just talk and talk or sing along to whatever music is playing on the radio!
The thoughts of my life: How can I make it better? When will it change? What should I do?
I guess you get the point by now!
So, with all the above ideas circulating around my mind, and notice this: we only use 25% capacity of our brains, it becomes harder and harder to choose one subject and talk about it! Thus, I end up writing nothing which is kind of ironic!
