I Want to Inhale the Stars, and Choke on the Dust of All the Lives They Held

Jun 13, 2012

juneblog034-1 juneblog025-1-1 juneblog035-1 juneblog031 My last few days were spent sitting criss-cross-apple-sauce on my bed in nothing but granny panties, nibbling on chocolate chip and walnut cookies for nurishmont, and staring at my glowing, blank computer screen.

Ah, writer's block. How I've missed you, old pal. There's nothing more daunting than staring at a blank word document and not being able to just wiggle your fingers in front of the keyboard (like you're flexing) and start piecing words together into a story like some beautiful, complex math problem. Nothing more daunting.

So instead I sigh about 49 times an evening and look out the window, listen to the bouncing echo of silence from the city night sky, and grumpily wish my computer could be crumpable like paper so I can at least have the satisfaction of throwing it.

 Blarg. (See, "blarg" is as good of a word I can come up with. Christ on a crutch.)

sweater- target
tropical print shirt- thrifted (birthday present from my boy)
skirt- h&m
necklace- urban outfitters (birthday present from me..to me)

  7. BUMMER on writers block, but WOOH for pretty tonal mixing and clothing! I love that you admitted to sitting in granny panties in front of the computer, the cookies make it all the better. Totally have been there!

    I 100% agree on your motivation advice. I need to avoid the computer (uhm and the snacks in the kitchen) and just go straight to the task at hand. A little something called will-power,which I sometimes am so good with, and sometimes its completely lacking. I guess thats life!

    While I am on a rant, I love the top from the previous post and your red birthday outfit! FLoral crowns and tequila shots, what more could a girl need! Seriously.
    Thought I was following before but I definitely am now!
    Have a great day!

  10. Starting a blank document is so daunting, it reminds me of starting the first page of a sketchbook... I never want to ruin it!

    You look great, I particularly like that spotty green cardigan, how very sweet!

  15. I do believe writer's block to be the most frustrating of things. Because the thoughts are in there, swirling around, just taunting you, but nothing can be fished out. I hate it.

    Anyway, you look absolutely lovely - that cardigan is so sweet and your outfit so romantic, love it all.

  18. Well even if you didn't manage to fill up the Word document with pretty words, you definitely had them in abundance when it came to blogger...this post is really beautifully written! I can compeltely empathise with the dreaded blank document affliction though. I often try and just fill a page with a stream of consciousness - a little like warming up before exercising - and then discard it and try and start into something more meaningful. Your outfit is gorgeous here by the way...I love the polka dot skirt and the pretty colours!

  19. I love your skirt. The top of it is perfect and the layering here is so lovely.

    Writers block is a hard thing to deal with. A professor once told me "ass + chair" cures writers block. Meaning sit until you've written something, anything. So far, this hasn't failed me. I hope you've cured yours!

  30. I switch over to pen/paper when writer's block sets in. different place to look & a different place to sit always seems to do the trick.

    cute skirt!

  32. Such a pretty outfit for the summer. I love the tropical print of your shirt. And your pattern mixing is fabulous. Don't worry about writers block, it will come back to you. I think stressing about it only makes it worse.
