Planning to #Write Bravely

The doodles above are from posts I wrote back in 2010 and 2011. Looking at the level of detail in “Monday Night’s Busy Blues,” it seems I may have had my sh*t together on that day.

It’s Monday morning, and the annoying melody crescendos while Steph struggles to find her phone.

“Where is that frickin’ thing?”

Steph finds the buzzing monster buried deep in the covers by her feet.

She considers her schedule for the day, “Today, I need to workout on the elliptical machine, pack my lunch, pack my son’s lunch, take a shower, brush my teeth, get ready for work, drive to work, call ABC, do XYZ, drive home, fix dinner, clean up, do a load of laundry…”

Pausing, she thought about her plan to write bravely in the Festival of Words, a blogging challenge hosted by busy bunch of people over in Mumbai at Write Tribe.

“Ack! When am I going to find the time to draft the post for Day 4 and follow the prompt to ‘feature a day in your life or someone else’s life?'”

This is when Steph realized that she could have saved the fabulous free verse she wrote with luxurious abandon during her vacation this past weekend for today’s blog post.

“Ugh.”

Steph rolls over and falls back to sleep.

  1. Surely was an aciton packed day and your write up on it was extremely creative . I liked the way you didnt tediously meander through your day, listing out every little thing, rather you infused some spirit into it.

    1. The list was tempting, but I tried to put myself in the reader’s position. Do they care about the minutia of my day? Probably not. But I tried to connect with them by providing information to identify with.

  2. its like a ton of work we need to go through everyday. You have made it interesting too. I was reading a letter written by Kala on her Relax and Rave blog before coming here and now I have no complaints – I know you have already left to check what she has written.
