Difficulties with Writer’s Block

by Brendan Strong

A plot! A plot! My story needs a plot!
There are words and ideas teeming.

The soul, scathed is reeling.
The searching is done and the story is won, but not plot! No plot! No plot!
The mind and the hands composing
– First one, then the other –

Who could bear with such a thing?
Ideas tease out words that tumble from brain to screen,
From the mind to the eye, with no “Where?” or “Why?”
No reason to continue.

But
Read on! Read on!
