When you’re stuck in a creative funk and need something to write about, you might start focusing inwards and comparing those emotions to everyday objects. Then somehow you end up scribbling this silly rough draft  in your journal, wondering if you should expand on it and turn it into anything substantial through more editing and revisions later.

Well, having done just that, the snapshot you see below is what I ended up writing in my journal while trying to work through the writer’s block. I’m not even sure what to call it yet, so I’ll just stick with calling it “Cold Sweater” for now.

    I really like this! Simple but catchy. I never thought of all the sweaters orphaned in my closet. I won’t be surprised if they go through the sweater ‘blues’.
