I would blame the weather for the writer's block.One cannot have a May so cold and expect to get anything done beyond the essentials and sitting on the couch and hating the world.Fie!

Writer's block?You prefer to write about the old instead of the new --- how can you have writer's block?And why do you vehemently refuse to make me a guest contributor for one piece?You want click bait and conversation you just have me waste away in the comments section to sometimes by singled out either for scorn or the surprising to the praiser praise.

When are we doing the 1963 Best Supporting Actress thing?

May 29,2016 | Unregistered CommenterPeggy Sue

3rtful,writer's block isn't necessarily about having something to write about.It's often about the will and the desire and the ability to make heads or tails of the ideas you want to get across (if you have something to say at all).

That screengrab from Truth or Dare reminds me of my favorite moment—when M imitated Belinda Carlisle.The shaaaaaaaaade.
