Writing dreams with coffee

Sitting there in front of the computer screen, her mind was blank.

Totally void of any and all thoughts or ideas. 

But then that was nothing new. It was like the screen, or the keyboard or maybe even the chair, something anyway, seemed to suck every sensible consciousness out of her being when she sat to write.

Letting out a deep sigh she got up and walked away. Maybe a coffee would help.

Maybe letting go of that crazy notion that there was indeed a writer within her just waiting to be unleashed would help. Though she had held onto that crazy notion for so long now that she doubted whether letting go of it was really possible. It felt like it was ingrained upon her soul. Her destiny if you will.

A destiny that she thought she had been heading towards for as long as she could remember. A childhood dream that had stayed with her as she grew into a woman. Niggling away at her as she tried to find her place in life doing other things.

For as much as she longed to do nothing but write words to be read by the masses reality told her the chances were slim. Very slim. After all there were thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of other people who held onto similar dreams. Some of whom actually managed to get words out when they say down to write.

Unlike her.

Thankfully somewhere along the line the Internet came into being. Just the answer that wanna be writers the world over had been waiting for. An outlet that allowed them to feel like they were writing for the masses. Provided of course they remain oblivious to things like stat counters and the like.

Sitting back down with her hot coffee her gaze returned to the blank screen. Which by now had gone to sleep so the blankness of it all was even more evident. Taking a sip from her cup she could feel the warm liquid travel down her throat. It's golden goodness filling her veins like some kind of inspirational  blood. Or at least that is what she hoped would happen.

She always lived in hope.
