The static from that radio. It dug into my brain with each wave of white noise. Patsy Cline's voice sang a melody inside the machine. I gritted my teeth with each lyric, and my fingers tapped over the keyboard without enough pressure to type words.

I had been so close to creating a plot for a story worth writing out. A story of my mind, not a fanfic. It'd been a while since I'd written anything.

Grumbling, I closed the blank word document. Maybe I'd break writers block later.
Yeah, this actually all came together in my mind just now. I actually was trying to scramble for a plot, and my grandfather found his radio and began playing it. Dunno if it was actually Patsy Cline though. The diologue bits never happened though. =A= I just sat here in annoyance til I vented out a monologue.
