Losing Words

Have you ever been writing and you stop, not because you don’t know where it’s going, but because you need a word that you know exists but cannot remember what the word is?

It is something that doesn’t happen to me often, but when it does, it infuriates me. I get stuck on it and can’t move forward because it sits at the front of my mind and disturbs my flow. But I am lucky, I have writer friends I can talk to and usually they are more than willing to help me find the word I am looking for.

It’s often just a guessing game on their part, shaking the branches of the tree that is my mind. Hoping that the fruit will fall. most of the time it does, though sometimes it takes a little over an hour and by then I could have lost the motivation to continue. So, I believe I need to read over an entire dictionary.
