Writers Block

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.

The End
