Writer's Block


I am writing this post for "100 words on a Saturday's" prompt of using a quote from the list of writing quotes. I chose the quote below.

The thing all writers do best is find ways to avoid writing.


Myrna washed the windows until they shone. She scrubbed the kitchen and the bathroom. Then she vacuumed the rugs. A fresh scent of lemon filled the air as she dusted the furniture.

There was a knock on the door and her writer friend, Gloria stood in the doorway holding a basket containing a notebook, a thermos, two mugs and some fresh carrot muffins.

“I thought you could probably use a break,” Gloria said.

“That’s so nice of you, Gloria.”

“Having trouble with the novel?”

“Yes. How did you know that?”

“Your house is so clean,” Gloria said with a grin.
