How to Defeat Writers Block.
Tick tock, hands move round the clock
But nothing makes it to the paper.
An hour’s passed. The plot’s a crock.
There is no real mystery to this caper.
When creativity fails, institute a drill,
On note cards, write a good location.
It’s said London England’s quite a thrill,
For a man of the detective’s vocation.
The genre and scene are set,
But there is still so much to do.
Characters are the biggest asset,
So write the hero on card two.
Cards three through five will fill up fast,
As the minor players lay in wait
The opposition’s uncovered at last
And it’s time to decide their fate.
