Today's prompt: Small


I'm having trouble even getting started with this one! This whole writer's block thing is weird and unfamiliar for me. Usually if I get stuck writing, I at least know where I want to go. That way I can start in the middle and write the part I know, then go back and work my way into it. I have no idea where "small" will lead me, so I certainly can't do that!

Good things come in small packages?

I'm not small, I'm fun-sized?

How many other "small" cliches can you come up with?

I recently did a post on the challenges of living in a small space.

Somehow my five minutes is nearly up, and I've said absolutely nothing. I hope my random musings have at least made you chuckle or shake your head and smile.

How do you deal with writer's block? I'd love some advice from more experienced writers so my next week isn't this ridiculous!


Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go cut myself a not-so-small chunk of peanut butter rice krispie bar and settle back down with Big Bang Theory and my crocheting. As soon as I do, I'm sure an insightful and eloquent idea will pop into my head. You'll have to come back another day to read it.

Love to all my Five Minute Friday-ers who show me patience and support in spite of my haphazardness!

Five Minute Friday


  1. Agree with Anna...sometimes the random and chatty posts are the most fun ones of all! Especially the part about the not-so-small peanut butter rice krispie treat. Now I'm hungry. :) Happy Friday to you!

  2. Ahem, pass that crispy treat on over my way, would ya? I've had the WORST writer's block this week too! I don't know what it is, but the words just wont come. I;ll be prain' for ya!

  3. But you still wrote! Rather than just saying, eh, next time!! and your cliches were funny! Hope you enjoyed your treat...and laughs from BBT!!

  4. We all have those days and those moments. Usually I listen to music or just start brainstorming words and see what comes out. Writer's block is hard and such a struggle! Sometimes I think it may just be God's way of telling us to rest. :) Happy FMF!

  5. Wait, I want to join you for rice krispy treats and BBT! Sounds like a perfect ending to a great day!

  6. Ha! Welcome to the insanity. The monster gets us all at some point. I like your pluck to push it through though. Great job!!

  7. Oh girl, first, pass me some of that Rice Krispie treat! And writer's block, yes, been there. I sometimes have to sit and stew for a while before I can write. I don't have a cure, but just know it's okay to have a block every now and then.

  8. Andrea,
    Clever, that is why I have written no FmF post yet. Haha. So you can't go and read mine!!!
