Rather love this (even if it's taken me nearly a month to comment...). Your wordplay is spectacular (as always). I love how the title ties in, too. "Meta" could apply to most of your stories. And "physical" plays off both "fought" and "block". There's also the shape of it: "Fought writer's block" is short but tody, while the spacing (and the shorter length) make "Lost the plot" look truly defeated.
I was pleased with the title ^^ And I didn't think too much about the shape (there weren't really any words in the story I could have exchanged for other ones. The shape wasn't something I truly had control over) but I think you're right: the shortness of the second sentence does add to the sense of defeat.
very much so. Worse still is knowing how the bits connect but not being able to write it out...Struggling to write the first prolog, which sets the stage for the second prolog and the rest of the story.....ahh, I even worked out the timeline, exact WEEKS and how they pass....and now I can't write it. *sobs*
... In my dictionary next to "writer's block" is "writer's cramp", in German "Schreibkrampf", which sounds to me more like "writing cramp" - and even if the intended meaning is "physically not to be able to write", the actually to me implied meaning is "cramp to not stop writing". Strange. Maybe because of the closeness to "Schreikrampf" - which the English language smartly avoids with "screaming fit". Oh my! Thank you for your excitation!-)
