Writer's Block Person sighed as they stared at the half-finished Google Doc for
the next issue of Writer's Block Person. It was a really good idea with a strong
emotional core, but they'd had it half-finished for months, only rarely being in
a place to engage with those strong emotions.
("Only rarely being?" Ugh, what an awkward phrase.)
And it had been winter for months and they were just *so* low on the energy to
confront. And every time they got it up to do so, they spent most of their time
catching up and they never had time for moving forward blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah
they flopped on the floor next to the desk.
Whisperion knock-knock-knocked on the window. WBP siiiiiiiiighed and rolled
across the floor, pulling themself
up and unlatching it and pushing it open.
"Writer's Block Person!" she shouted. "We're having a huge battle right down in the
Come and help!"
uff. Okay well maybe this would be something they could focus on instead of
writing. Even tho they wouldn't have time for writing after probably...
They shook themselves out. "Right, of course. HENSHINSPIRATION!" They let the
energy of transformation lift them up to a stand, put the momentum in place, and
started running for the door.
"Uh," said Whisperion. "It's a dark magical energy thing, so you should use your
heart emoji form."
They stopped, and sagged, and felt the momentum dissol
"Okay, no, sorry," they said. They took a deep breath, trying to channel more
energy than they felt. It... only kind of worked. They pushed forward and held
up the pen.
"Emoticonversion..." The heart formed in the air... flickered, flickered...
moved towards them...
Fell on the floor and smashed into pie
"uh," said Whisperion. "Hon I should probably run and help them, you just stay
here and take care of yourself, okay?"
"I love you. See you after." She closed the window and ran off.
can't never can
take a breath
ypu don't have to do it all
there's a team
she's your *friend* s dammit
it's okay and you are fucking okay even if you don't finish everything you did
something you added to the world and people value that, your enthusiasm and love
carries them along and helps them do their part which helps you do your part,
stay in the loop even a little bit and I promise, things will be so much better!
Writer's Block Person pushed themselves, painfully, to their feet, and stood up.
"That's right! Even if I can only do part of it... part is better than none!"
"Anything worth doing... is worth half-assing... over not doing it at all!" They
held up their wand. "EMOTICONVERSION! CODE POINT <look it up>!" The pieces of
the Heavy Black Heart emoji rose, stutteringly, into the air, swirling around
the central point, glowing bright red; Writer's Block Person's armor glowed
golden in response, washing out the details, and the emoji-pieces flew into the
air and SLAMMED into their chest!
When the light faded, Writer's Block Person's armor was covered in golden
cracks, with the gem on their chest being in the shape of the broken heart
emoji, bordered in gold with gold running thru the crack. They posed. "Even
though I started this and didn't continue it-- it's time to finish it!"
"...oh dangit, I still need to feed the cat..."
ran out and joined the battle.
