Writer's moon

This is a five minute timed writing about anything at all. I just need the words to flow. I need to break this dam in my mind; I need to release the hounds of the muse to hunt down my story. I need to hear them baying as they corner the elusive narrative. I need to follow them on my computer horse until we corner the story in a box canyon. Then we'll go in, me and my computer with my paper net, and catch the flighty metaphors, the swift similes, the twisty plots, and the tangled tales. Then we'll ride back across the fields of white wheat under the typewritten skies, the victorious writer back from the wild writing hunt, another story to put non-metaphoric food on the table.
