Writer’s Block

Sludge

Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt. 

*****************

Linda sat in front of her computer, contemplating the blinking cursor on the empty document.  Frustrated, she picked up her coffee mug.  Without looking, she tipped it up to drink and was rewarded with a mouthful of grainy sludge.  Bitter, it filled her mouth with an acrid flavor, even sticking between her teeth.

She rushed across the hall to the bathroom where she  spit out the mouthful of coffee grounds, brushed her teeth vigorously, rinsed with mouthwash.  Better, but she figured she’d be picking tiny bits of ground coffee  from her teeth for the rest of the day.

Okay.  Back to the computer.  Drat.  The document was still empty, the cursor still blinking at her maliciously.

Time to go make some more coffee.
