The Writer’s Dilemma

I’m writing this poem or short story.

I don’t know which one it is.

Hell, I’m thinking, I’m the main character.

But, I keep worrying about my editor.

What about marketing or getting an agent?

But, I’m the one creating all the drama.

The plot starts out with a philosopher/writer.

Who really wants to live the ‘good life’.

Me or him gets into a little trouble along the way.

I am acting like an ass at work and end up finding work at night.

My dad dies and I go home to help out like I planned ten years ago.

Or am I just going to get help for myself?

Okay, so maybe, rather than tell the whole plot, I can show it.

Like, I keep running from one bad habit to another.  (Show it.)

Now, I’m running from myself or was I doing that from the start?  (Show it.)

At least, I have the blog.

I like to journal.

I may publish a journal for others to use.

The story writes itself.

And people are sometimes into writing stuff as a job or vocation.

It’s good to show the epic without the moralizing or story telling!

I’ve got this vision, but I’m stuck in process.

Is this what is called writer’s block?
