Typewriter ribbon changed? Check.
Circuit breaker off, lamps on? Check.
He was ready. Nothing could distract him, and nothing could get him down. He was going to write and that was that. He put his fingers on the keyboard and breathed.
And he breathed again.
3 hours later, he was still breathing. Not a single word typed.

Yes, it’s hard sometimes, I agree. But tomorrow is another day 🙂
Nice take on the prompt. Hard to believe the mood lighting didn’t work.
I would seat myself in a noisy cafeteria instead… silence never created anything
LOL … have you been peaking into my writing space?
I fear I’ve had those moments. Nicely described …
