you have 90 minutes to finish...

Remember sitting in high school/college English class with a bright white piece of paper and a sharpened pencil sitting on the desk in front of you? The teacher is standing at the front of the classroom explaining the directions for the assignment. You hear the topic prompt, you pick up the pencil and you stare at the blank paper in front of you; struggling with composing the first sentence. The clock continues to tick away the minutes; you continue to wait for inspiration as you stare at a blank piece of paper.

Finally inspiration comes and you begin writing furiously (of unrestrained energy, speed not, full of fury, violent passion, or rage; extremely angry)

Tonight I am still staring at the bright white, blank page screen waiting for inspiration to come!
