Staring blankly at the screen is not going to make an idea appear. It’s like watching a pot, and MAN that was a hard one for me to think up. First sentence written, second sentence totally blocked. I got stuck on the pot adjective. It’s like watching what KIND of pot? What describes the pot? This is a saying – “like watching a _____ pot” – what’s the missing word?
A watched pot. Totally screwed up that idiom. (You’re an idiom. Your MOM’S an idiom.) I think maybe I need some sleep. 6am felt earlier today than usual, and work felt more overwhelming, and I went to yoga for the first time in a week, and I could feel it, and 6am is going to come even earlier tomorrow, so I’m out. Me and my watched pot are going to bed.
