The Words Are Not Coming

Ok, the words are simply not coming. My sentences sound so ploddy and heavy. I have to think for a few minutes for the right words and even then they may not come. There's a cloud in my head.

wait,stop and think ... am sure for a person like(Sujatha aka writer) it hardly takes any time for the dark clouds to give way to a heavy down pour of words.

hope a cup of hot coffee and oodles of silence works, it does for me at times.

Suj:

some words…may, mayn’t work…stick to you normal (whatever goes for normal) routine…minimise any deviations from the routine…and while we may not have a control over thinking…pinch yourself 5/10…meaningfully…5/10?…yeah

imagine a 10 oz. glass with 5 ozs. of water:)

(the next step maybe a bit harder…imagine it, will yourself to imagine it to be half full)

pinching 5/10 helps …it conditions…(no no, i protest – not pavlovian rats!)

and before you know…(read some days or weeks of this pinch 5/10 therapy)…you’d pouring reams

Tanay, thanks for the vote of confidence! :)

Charu, hopefully you'll be back soon. I still haven't seen your Rajasthan post. Have been meaning to put up mine for a couple of months now, but no time. :)

S, thanks. Will follow your advice, although no coffee now, only Complan (feeding the baby):)

t, hope you went to bed shortly thereafter! I'll do the glass thing, but not the pinching thinggy, sorry. :) If I get even more desperate, then may be I'll try it.
