If you’ve already read Part I, then let me continue. Thanks!

…Standing in the doorway is a distraction. Doesn’t matter what the distraction is, maybe it’s the housekeeper, telling me she needs to clean the room I’m in. I tell her I’m writing and she starts cleaning anyway. The noise from the vacuum threatens to break my concentration. She finally finishes cleaning and I thank her for disturbing me, she replies in Spanish (probably cursing at me) and leaves me alone with my insanity.

I keep writing until the phone starts ringing, I ignore it as much as I can before someone threatens to leave a long message on the answering machine, trying to sell me something I don’t need. After I hang up on this person, the doorbell rings, it’s the mailman, asking me to sign for a package before he starts talking about how he’s dating another stripper. After congratulating him I take my package and return to my room.

The “Writer’s Block” gnaws at my consciousness like a hungry raven. But since I refuse to believe in “Writer’s Block” I press on.

At first the words are elusive, like a woman playing hard to get, then, I think about winning the lottery or how much I love my nieces. Something happens, the words flow, like an untamed river in an Oscar-winning movie. I write until my fingers throb, I feel good, and why shouldn’t I? I’m doing what I was meant to do. Write.

So there you have it, the Crazy Life of Writers, don’t say I didn’t warn you! LOL.
