Worst Critic

Can you just will yourself to

write? even if you don’t ‘feel’ like

it? or are not ‘in the mood’? or

aren’t inspired by some powerful

feeling arising from within??

So, its like I’m staring at a blank,

white screen but the projector is not


Like extemporaneous public

speaking exercises in Toastmasters.

You’d better either have a

great imagination & coherent

presence of mind, or ‘faking it’

might prove difficult.

Still, no notes.  It all came off the

‘top of your head’ so to speak for

5? 10? minutes.  Seemed

like an eternity.

Everyone was wanting you to

succeed & sending you

support while you were

grading with a bloody red

pen your performance

all the way.
