Picking up the thread....

Right now, I should be working on a short story that's due in a couple of days but instead, I'm doing everything I can to avoid it. The file is open, the story is there, but I haven't been able to turn to it, not yet. I'm afraid if I go back to it, I will have lost the thread, that the words won't come as easily. I envy those writers who make it seem so effortless and I wonder if they struggled in their early days as I struggle now. There's only one thing for it, I suppose, and that's to just close my eyes and jump in and hope I reach the ground in one piece.
