2017 Marching Wildcats Present . . .

It happens to every writer. It’s inevitable. Your prose turns to mush, you don’t have a creative bone left in your body, and you want to throw in the towel. But imagining it as a dream has the opposite effect. That dream could become the source for a story. And, at a minimum, it serves as a reminder that no matter how blocked your creativity may be, you still have the capacity to imagine something new.

Writer’s Block features the following compositions – Equillibrium by Michael Oare and Pure Imagination with words and music Bricusse Leslie and Anthony Newley.
