don't believe in writer's block

“ How best to shift out of this practical state of mind ? ” asked the scribbler staring at the blank page. There was a notebook beside her right elbow, and a box with a couple hundred thousand words of a draft on the table directly in front of her, but she felt uneasy, knowing when she started she’d to be swept away by the swift current that is writing fiction. They say, it’s only words, but she’d been there before, swam out from shore, nearly drowned, alone, in the mindless depths of the ocean of thoughts and ideas that is a story.

100 word story, also called a drabble. 

Story 1. for a story a day in May.
