CORRESPONDENCE

RUONA

Dear Writer’s block,

It’s me, your prisoner. You’ve held me captive for almost two months and I’m using this medium to remind you that I’m still here, held in an agonizing sequence of unending torture because you won’t let me write. It’s not easy you know? When you’re not able to be consistent with your work. I know you can’t relate because you consistently snatch creative souls and drain creative juices for fun. But abeg, I wasn’t born to be a prisoner and I’m tired. I deserve freedom too. I didn’t even do anything wrong so what kind of captivity is this?

At first, I just thought my brain went on holidays and would be back soon but after three weeks, I knew it had to be you. You didn’t even deny it. Instead, you came to gloat. You’ve been deriving joy from the fact that I cannot write my thoughts and ideas down. What did I do?

WRITER’S BLOCK

Dear Ruona,

First and foremost, you’re rude. If you want to beg me, can’t you beg properly? Is it because I’ve not taken away your will to write that you’re here, speaking big English?

You’ve been enjoying this prison since. Other people that were taken captive after you have been released and it’s now you’re realizing that you’ve been subjected to an agonizing torture for almost two months?

RUONA

Dear Writer’s block,

Please forgive my lack of manners. What I should have said is that I am sorry for whatever it is I may have done to offend you and if you don’t mind, I’d like to ask for my freedom.

I am pleading for mercy. I don’t want to be here anymore. All I want to do is write. It would mean a lot to me if you could release me from this torture and I promise, I won’t bother you again.
