A Common Writing Conversation

Ever Have One of These Days?  Today I was working on deadline, and for the life of me my brain was just not cooperating.

Brain Conversation I was able to drag myself through it and meet the deadline, but it wasn't easy and it wasn't eloquent. I've been writing on deadline for years. Shouldn't it be easier by now?

Nope. Some days it's like smashing rocks. Some days your brain wants to do other things, like eat a bunch of chocolate and loll around in a field watching butterflies.
