The Writer’s Block Hoedown

(to a country-western twang)

I want to write a story, I want to write a tale
I want to see it published and get checks in the mail
I wanna be the hottest thing that you have ever seen
but all that I am doing, is staring at the screen!

I’ve got a case of writer’s block, as you can plainly see
I had it something awful now, since 2000-and-3!
I’ve got character and setting, but I haven’t got a shot
’cause all these things are useless if I haven’t got a plot

Nothing happens!
Nothing happens!
Nothing happens in my tale

Nothing happens!
Nothing happens!
My story is a fail

Perhaps I try a bit too hard, perhaps I should relax
perhaps I oughta just write down a tale based on the facts
Just give your guy a problem, the writing coaches say
then figure out how his quirks will help him save the day

But nothing happens!
Nothing happens!
Nothing happens in my tale

Nothing happens!
Nothing happens!
My story is a fail

It’s causing me some anguish, my lame attempts at art
you can’t ever finish, what you never start
But your muse will never flourish, when threatened by a gun
so I’m gonna write a filk about it, and then call it done

’cause nothing happens!
Nothing happens!
Nothing happens in my tale

Nothing happens!
Nothing happens!
My story is a fail!

I see you've heard Keith Urban's "Put You In A Song"

I haven't, actually. What is it?

A disturbingly similar concept, as a country song:

Hrm ... it doesn't seem to be about writer's block!

Weird thing is, I don't actually much care for country music, but for some reason every song I come up with works best in it.

That's okay, every song I think up sounds better as pop than country.

Darn plots always get you, don't they? x.x

Stoopid plots, always needing to be thunk up!

Without plots, you cannot have plot holes.

Stoopid logics.
