She sits in her computer chair, staring at the monitor. She knows she should be editing her new chapter, but she just can’t bring herself to maximize the bar at the bottom of the screen. She glances to her left. She realizes that she would rather burn fifty CDs than open her story. She glances to her right. She realizes she would rather use up all her texts than open her story. She glances to her left. She realizes she would rather turn on the TV and zone out for hours than open her story. She glances to her right. She realizes she would rather listen to Beethoven’s Greatest Hits repeatedly than open her story. She glances down. She realizes she would rather pick up a pencil and recreate the Mona Lisa than open her story. She glances to her right. She realizes she would rather stick every Post It note to the ceiling than open her story. She glances to her left. She realizes she would rather grab a cactus branch than open her story. She glances behind her. She realizes she would rather run a marathon with her cat than open her story. She glances back at the monitor. She realizes she would rather sound like a complete idiot than open her story. She places her hand on the mouse and moves the cursor. She clicks open her story. She clicks the ‘Save’ button. She closes her story. She shuts down the computer and goes to bed. She lies in bed and thinks about her story. She falls asleep. When she wakes up in the morning, she turns on her computer. She sits down in her computer chair. She places her hand on the mouse and moves the cursor. She clicks open her story.
