    • This is my attempt at a PSA for writers 🙂 They say write what you know and that inner critic I know all too well. Hopefully those 42 words will help others to realize for thenselves when the creative block is self imposed and I thought the spider cocooning the prey was a strong visual tool.

  1. Dear BA,

    A devilishly short but good take on the prompt. I know what you mean. My inner critic is allowed his say but that is all. i drive the train. Well done.

    Aloha,

    Doug

    • Thanks Doug! I hope those words will help another writer who hasn’t figured out how to manage that inner critic yet. You’re right…mine is allowed its opinion but over the years I finally installed a mute button.

  2. Oh, dear! I know those voices far too well. I think all writers do. Hope you successfully manage to banish that parasite. Interesting take on the prompt.

    All my best,
    Marie Gail
