Blogger: Um…soooo…. *longish kind of short pause* Whatcha doin?
Me: *typing away on lappy* My writer’s block is gone, so *shrugging shoulders* I’m writing.
Blogger: Oh. *Another longish pause—a little awkward*
Me: *Still typing*
Blogger: So I haven’t seen you hanging out for a while... It’s like you fell off the internet. *uncomfortable laugh*
Me: *stopping, looking up at Blogger* I really want to get this revising done. I’m on a roll. It should only take me a few days to be caught up.
Blogger: *pursed lips, tone defensive (a little annoying)* You didn’t even say you were unplugging or anything. I mean…what’s up with that?
Me: I wasn’t planning on unplugging, it just kind of happened that way. *putting fingers back on keys, commencing the writing*
Another awkward pause, really…really…realllly long. Blogger looks a little fumed.
Blogger: Be honest. Are you breaking up with me?
Me: What? *surprised at Blogger’s concern…and honestly, a little perplexed*
Blogger: Is it my hair? I knew it! You hate my hair! *little sob*
Me: Ah….no... It’s not your hair. I promise. I’ve just been so busy with the writing that I kind of…haven’t been blogging.
Blogger: So you’re not breaking up with me?
Me: No you silly. I’m not breaking up with you. I’m just unofficially unplugged. I’m sorry I didn’t tell you sooner.
Blogger: So we’re okay then. *wiping away a single tear (for dramatic sake)*
Me: Yes, we are just fine. I’ll be back next week.
Me: So… *making a funny face, not realizing the strangeness of it all* You have hair? Interesting.
Sorry I haven’t been commenting lately my awesome bloggy best friends. My writer’s block has broken and I’m sucked into the super massive writing hole. I promise I’ll be back next week (or the week after…you know. If this writer’s block stays away.)
But before I run off to write, how do you guys deal with writers block? Be honest, do you talk to blogger when it happens?
