I suppose this could be much, much longer.
But as I said,
the clock ticks on and it is one in the morning.

And the Clock Ticks On

Ticking clocks are very, very obnoxious. Especially when amplified by silence, and accompanied by the tapping of a pen. Repetitive sounds, the symphony of her midnight writer's block.

Music, music is what she needs. Lyrics already created. An obvious example of a writer who made it through the nightly agony of trying to squeeze literary juice from their dried up fruit of an imagination. The voice from the stereo fills up her ears.

How could a literary masterpiece be contrived from a life so mundane, so ordinary as hers? Morbid thoughts often filled her head. If her parents had died, maybe she'd have a certain dash of tragedy thrown into her writing. If she was in the witness protection program--well, there would be mystery. If she was having a raging secret romance, her writing would scream passion and secrecy and love.

An exotic and exciting life loomed in front of her eyes--summers spent in Paris with passionate artists, winters in New York in a quaint apartment writing by the fire, spring backpacking through Italy and writing by lamplight in the streets at midnight.

And the clock ticks on.

  I sometimes find it rather creepy how much we may actually think alike. (Then does this mean that I am favorite-ing my own thoughts? Haha.) No... because they're your thoughts but oh dear I can *cringe* relate. Pretty much the entire thing.

On top of that, I really enjoy the way you present these ideas.

"the symphony of her midnight writer's block." (beautiful and how fitting!)

"nightly agony of trying to squeeze literary juice from their dried up fruit of an imagination" (I like this very much).

And these are only a few of the lines I loved.
Please write more :-)

haha. Peace!
