What's Left?

This is the next to the last day of the slicing challenge and I'm searching for a meaningful and interesting idea for a post. I have lots of blog posts from other bloggers saved to use as inspiration, but I'm not feeling them right now. I just spent thirty minutes looking through blogs for more ideas. Nope. The only thing that comes to mind is this: "Everything's been written already. What else do I have to say? It's been said." You know what those words tell me?!?! That the judge is taking over. I'm too tired to push it away effectively. I've nudged that voice over enough to compose these words, yet I feel doubt regarding their importance. Writers...We write. We tell stories. We tell the truth. "Is any of it original? Is that even important?" NO. Stop!
I showed up here. I searched and listened and searched some more. I tried and failed. I tried again and now I'm writing these words. Are they brilliant? Nope. Why? They tell my story today. I'm struggling to think creatively, yet I showed up. I'm here doing the work and that's what writers do. What's left? Write. Show up. Push through. Do the work. The words will come. The story will emerge as long as the writer is there.
