'I' is For....?

Saturday's 'H' word was 'Hope.'  Thanks for all your wonderful comments and guesses!

Today, guess which 'I' emotion/feeling/state of mind I've depicted today in the short fictional passage below.  Jessica Bell is using the same prompt word for a passage of her own.  After guessing in the comments here, won't you follow the link and read Jess's entry?

Here's mine:

The writer stared at her computer screen.  The cursor blinked, accusingly, next to the one character she’d managed to type.  ‘I’.  She sighed, her mind wandering to her to-do list, which was short today.  She forced her attention back.  ‘I’.  What a silly prompt.  It’s a letter yet a word all by itself.  Big deal.  She lifted her fingers off the keyboard, examined a bit of polish chipped off one nail, then lay them back into the grooves of ‘a’, ‘s’, ‘d’, ‘f’, ‘j’, ‘k’, ‘l’, and semi-colon.  ‘I’.  What could she say about ‘I’.  She had no opinion, one way or another.  The only thing she cared about what getting something, anything, written down.

Any guesses?  See you over at Jessica's blog!
