How to Combat Writers’ Block, Part I

You sit down at your laptop, ready to go. It’s time to write, y’all! Let’s do this thing!

Have intense internal debate about Renee Zellweger’s weight gain for the role of Bridget. Remember you were promised s’mores at the cookout last night, but they were never received. Go upstairs and get grahams, marshmallows and chocolate. Set to make s’mores over a Glade scented candle. Realize the hilarious insanity of this situation.
