91/100 Days of Creativity: Hitting the Wall

Feeling fowey is defined as that period of intense internet surfing when things transition from being pretty boring to being really, really boring. It’s the perfect intersection of procrastination and diminished mental faculties. It usually occurs at the point when your good intentions of going to bed early go out the window.

Should you find yourself feeling fowey consider reaching for some food. It could be carbohydrates, caffeine or something to boost your blood sugar. Whatever you consider to be your power food, make sure you have some handy so you can bounce back from the fowey feeling and power on.


For 100 consecutive days I will write and post a short story (about 100 words) incorporating a randomly selected word from Afterliff: A new dictionary of things there should be words for.

Today’s word:
fowey adj.
Filled with self-loathing and despair after six hours surfing the internet.

Tomorrow’s word:
avonmouth n.
A woman who has overdone her lipstick.
