Why I'm not Writing at the Moment

See Rick Klaw's article at SFSite: The Art of Creative Aversion or pochkey.

Klaw quotes fantasist Jonathan Carroll, who says:

Pochkey means arranging your paper clips, sharpening pencils (often when they don't need it), cleaning the keyboard of your computer down to the last speck of dust or fingernail clipping that might have fallen between the keys, etcetera. At the same time, writers may pochkey a lot but for better or worse, that doesn't mean they aren't working.

The best I read was from writer Matthew Rossi:

I can't write now, I'm too horny.

Hey, at least he's honest.
