Well, The Maze is making steady progress towards completion. I think it's going nicely, but one thing's on my mind.
I like snakes. I don't want a big bucketful in my bed or anything, but they don't fill me with disgust when I see one. Hopefully that's not bleeding through here too much.
Bye, all!

The Terror of Writer's Block

Many things scare me. Cockroaches, the giant spider from Lord of the Rings (seriously, that thing was horrible!), getting a long-legged insect caught in my hair...
But there is one thing that is even worse than all of those things. Well, maybe excepting the giant spider.
I think it should be renamed 'artist's block' because really, doesn't every creative person hit a roadblock at some point? My grandmother, who is a really fantastic artist, has this problem now and again. It sucks. Everyone who's ever tried to create something, be it a picture, a short story, or a song, has hit this problem. Doesn't it just make you wanna rip your hair out in frustration?
I'm just getting over a nasty bout of the stuff myself, brought on by a rather nasty math exam I had a couple of weeks ago, and it's slow going. The real horror of it is getting right back into the frame of mind I was in before it hit. I have to admit, I'm afraid I won't. Even though I know it's all turning out fine, I have this (hopefully irrational) fear that I slipped too far out of touch with the story and that it'll show that I had that little break. And that is what scares me the most.
Well, apart from the spider...
