Let Go

Let creation go
straight from heart through fingers so
Mind won't cripple it.

Writer's Block 5-7-5 writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt
Write a (one stanza) 5-7-5 about your experience with writer's block. It can be funny or serious.

Whenever I find myself experiencing writer's block (or anything else in life), I have to give myself a good talking to. "Are you trying to control things here, Mind? Trying to reason things out and/or make everything come out perfectly right from the start?" Then I remind myself (what's said in this poem) and just begin writing. On step forward at a time, one word and then two, three . . . Bad or good, if I keep going, it triggers something and then the words start flowing freely. Yay, I broke through the writer's block! It's an AWESOME experience. I'm sure many of you writers know what I'm saying. Special thanks to karen zima for the awesome artwork.
