Axe me another question (5-7-5)

Writer's Block Gets The Chop

by LisaMay


I branch out to find

tree of knowledge will help me –

words won’t have me stumped


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.

Author's Note:

This poem sounds full of cocky bravado. It aint necessarily so! Believe me, I often tell lies when I write.
I think the dreaded 'writer's block' can step in at any time to hinder anyone who uses words, whether spoken or written.

We can do anything, be anyone, and go anywhere when we write. The tree of knowledge is always worth climbing, whether revisiting our own experiences by swinging through its branches, or scrambling higher to seek new experiences and a different view. Tapping into the nourishing roots of past wisdom from the explorations of others is also useful in helping to find words to express our own lives.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
