“so what are you working on?”
“no really, what are you working on?”
“actually, i’m really not working on anything. i haven’t been writing anything at all.”
there is no explanation. there is no situation. there is nothing. everything’s fine. really.
i just have nothing to say that hasn’t been said before. or maybe i do, and i am just trying to find the right words.
sometimes, it takes a while.
