    light

    I was proud of my memory and disliked having it prompted. So I sat staring at the diary, as at a blank space in a crossword puzlle. Still no light came.

    What can I say for light?

    Not a teacher.

    The condition you are describing, if I understand you, can be called "writer's block."

    So, "still I had writer's block."

    Or "my mind went blank."

    Or even "the words would not come."

    You could change light to inspiration.
