Walk Away

Some days the words aren’t there.
Nor will they come.
Not new shiny ones.
Nor old standbys.
Nothing.
Not. One.
Stinking. Word.
Those days, it’s best not to try.
Prose falls flat.
Edits make murk.
So don’t.
Go there.
Walk away.

~ Olivia J. Herrell

And here to concur are Joe Walsh and the James Gang performing the quintessential Walk Away:

Aha! You, too! Thanks for stopping by! Here's hoping this too shall pass. And soon!

When I saw the title of this post in my sidebar I got a bit concerned.

Yes, I've been there and know what you're saying. Sometimes we just have to do something else for a while in order to recharge our creativity.

"Walk Away" is a great song from a great album. I was a fan of The James Gang.
