WRITING 101 … VIGNETTEcropped-seal_v2-03

Today we were to write in the style of a vignette. This is a collection of brief scenes, possibly from different viewpoints, that all tie into the same theme of the piece.



I am the paper

I am the blank screen

I live to be used

Use me

Just write…


I am your muse

I am your imagination

I am here to serve you

Use me

Just write…


I am a writer

I own the paper and blank screen

I am the owner of my mind

Use them

Just write…


Thanks for visiting! Peace }I{

Nothing, nothing, nothing will come

It’s driving me batty…I’ve come undone

My inner critic is laughing, it’s true

But really and truly, I’m feeling blue

No verses, no prose, not even a pun

Who ever said that writing is fun?

My mind is full of tripe and nonsense

The words are there, but they make me wince

I string them together by one and twos

Then scratch them out, too scattered to choose

How many days must this go on?

The more I try, the more I’m alone

My muse, I think, has gone on vacation

Leaving me here with no inspiration

Can’t focus on anything…my thoughts on the run

And until I catch them, the race is not done

So, now I continue to sit on the fence

Which leaves me feeling frustrated and tense

Hey, wait…wait just a darn minute

A break in the clouds…I think I’m still in it

I have an idea, and it may be silly

But, no matter the trail be rocky and hilly

I’ll give it a try…see where it leads

Thread words together, like string through the beads


Peace }I{
