If you’re still not sure what I’m referring to, then one word can describe the feeling: birthday. It’s that feeling you get when it’s the night before you’re birthday, and you can’t sleep. Or when you know you’re getting some surprise and you get that tense feeling in your stomach that is often characterized as “butterflies.”
The feeling I am trying to explain is what I call anticipation. It can take many forms, sometimes positive, sometimes negative. It can be just before the Big Game. Or Exam Week.
Lately, anticipation is why I haven’t slept well for the past couple of nights. The anticipation of that giant 250 line epic poem we have to write. I’ve had some really bad writer’s block and I don’t know at all how to start it off even though I’ve gotten help from Fitz. If anyone has any suggestions – please, help!
