Will a brick wall work magic?

Do you hit one of these often? No, not head-on, smack-bang-into-the-middle-of-a-brick-wall-leaving-you-with-a-bleeding-forehead sort of hit (tempting as that may sound) but, metaphorically speaking.
I feel like I have.
My words are all clogged up, rammed into the backs of each other, in the deep chasm that is my mind. I have paper, I have pen, I have laptop. But nothing gels no matter how hard I try. Somewhat ironic that my jumbled-mind has hit an ordered and neatly structured object. Maybe the force of the impact will somehow throw all the words, that are waiting to be written, into the air where they will miraculously work themselves out and settle into perfectly structured sentences one after the other, waiting to exit via the conveyer belts that are my hands and the motor that is my mind?
On the other hand, perhaps a bout of cake baking and house cleaning (in that order, please) are the solution?
We'll see.

You'll climb over that wall one way or the other. I run into those walls all the time!

I haven't used the metaphor of hitting the wall but I have been feeling it. I have been feeling burned out, fried, and ready to snap.

I do think naming it and cake baking and house cleaning it helps get to the other side, at least I hope. I hope it foes for you too.

see you there! said...

There's that danged wall! I think we all hit it from time to time, Hopefully you've now baked a cake and taken the first step to opening up your creativity.

I am happy to see you back again! I caught up on your older posts below and am relieved your Mom's surgery went very well and she's even better than before.


A huge knocking at the wall with a giant hammer would be a good one?!
Let's break the wall down & start building a bridge instead...
Great week dear & the weather has been horrible in your country...stay cool dear!

Good Luck with the writing.

Suko: The change of pace worked a treat. Now time is the only issue!

septembermom: Climbing over it is one thing, remaining unscathed is another!

La Belette Rouge: I sincerely hope you are feeling much better soon. I have been thinking of you. Baking always helps least there is an outcome that can be lovingly shared/enjoyed by those around me.

see you there!: Baking helps and during cleaning I always miss writing. I have made some good progress I am happy to say!

Sher: Hello my dear! It is so great to hear from you. Thank you for your well wishes for my mum. I have missed blogging and cannot wait to catch up with your blog.

LENORENEVERMORE: It would feel so good to knock that wall with a hammer and to stand proudly on the rubble, don't you think?! Weather here has settled and we are back to cool weather...crazy!

The Small Fabric Of My Life: I hope you are feeling better and that things have picked up for you. Thank you for your words of support too. They are much appreciated.
