one of the worst feelings there is......................

Carbonation?

"Once upon a time in a dark place called Carbonation....". Or should that be a dark planet?? Well no, better stick, at least for the moment, with the words Alex gave him to start off with.

Josh had been suffering from writers block for weeks. Nothing was coming, and he really did need to write a story for the magazine. After all, he was the headline writer and it was certainly frowned up that he would not contribute to that quarter's publication. Often, in the past, he had had to write more than one story to add volume. So, since usually the hardest part was the title, Alex had kindly provided him with that.

But still, nothing would come. He could imagine a bit of what he wanted to write. He saw, but vaguely, in his mind's eye a picture of a place or planet, and science fiction was one of the magazine readers' favorite genres, where there was darkness and constant confusion. In other words, a sort of "carbonation" of the entire society as well as the atmosphere itself.

Josh slapped his head with his fist. "Drat!!!" The picture was great, concise and as complete as any idea he had ever had for a story, the words simply would not come.

Oh well, maybe he would write a piece about the pain of writers block. Nobody would believe the horror or simplicity of it, but still, it was all he could think about.
