    Woke up almost a half-hour ago. :3 I'll probably go back to sleep soon.

    I'm going to put my current WIP on hold and return to my other WIP. It's been a few months, so I can look at it a little more objectively now.

    I'm staring at a blinking cursor. I probably will for the next hour.

    Thanks Pip. This is all I could come up with.

    It blinks, goading me. “You can’t write anything of substance,” it says.

    I’ve been staring at this blinking cursor for an hour and all I want to do is punch it in the face. The problem is, it does not have a face to punch. It can mock me incessantly and I have no recourse. I like the idea that bdcharles, a fellow writer had. Perhaps if I drink at the cursor it will feel insecure. What does it loathe the most? A double malt? Straight Kentucky bourbon? Perhaps it’s more refined and likes its gin with a little bit of tonic. Suddenly I question whether or not I am sane for believing that a cursor would grow envious over my drinking habits. It’s not like the cursor hasn’t watched me drink before. Often, when it mocks me in jest, I’ve downed a few cool ones. Whenever I do that, the cursor seems to blink faster, and sometimes gets blurry. Or it could be the preceding words. That’s the problem with this cursor. I will write a word and it continues to blink. I’ll write another word, and still, it flitters.

    “That word you wrote lacks any finesse,” it mocks. I read the word again and I agree. It’s a lackluster word, without any poignancy or insight or poetic resonance. Suddenly I realize that the cursor is not my enemy, but he is my ally. He is reminding me that he exists to transcribe. Language is his forte.

    But alas, I can not appease it. I can not write, compose. So with that I will have another drink, lament, and shake my fist as this accursed cursor.

    A blinking cursor is speaking to you in morse code... 'get your butt into gear and just write'

    The blinking cursor is a curse I am sure everyone experiences at least twice a day.
