Staring at the Screen

I stare at the screen
Wishing to type
Making something for today
Beyond the scheduled fare
Yet my mind is clogged
With thoughts of the day
Another one of chaos

People hurry to get things done
I feel I’m always last to move
Never finishing
The tasks I set
Because someone has to lose
And I take my sweet ass time
Forgetting where I am

My nerves are wracked
I wish to rest
And think about what looms
Cover reveals and week of hype
The blog tour coming soon
A public chat with many voices
I have yet to think it through

So I stare at the screen
Hoping for ideas
On this day I’ll be pushed hard
Everyone has a place to be
Or work they ‘must’ get done
Finally getting time
When my mind and body aches

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
