Working On It

I'm feeling some pressure from the Younger Set. Self-imposed for certain, but pressure nonetheless.

The pressure goes something like this: "I think you should write about this!"

Don't they know that merely by saying those words out loud, the pressure squashes my imagination and leaves me like a fish gasping for air on the beach? The slow trickle of the creative stream that occasionally leaks out of my body completely dries up, not a mist remains.

Evidently, they don't.
The Younger Set.

Why would they?

Now who comprises this "Younger Set?"

I hear you on the loss of creativity when creativity is expected upon demand. It never works out well that way...
