Today is submission day,
because I have the day off from my job
and had this all planned.

Actually, it was planned for Monday –
but today I will be serious.
I even opened all the right folders.

But first I unload the dish washer.
Then the cat litter box requires attention,
and the sink needs scrubbing.

Facebook is not a waste of time if I just share 
what awesome work my friends do, right?
That counts as productive.

I make myself some tea. Hydration 
is important. And I haven’t had breakfast. 
An avocado sounds good.

I discovered that writing amazon reviews is fun.
It’s a skill I need to work on.
Practice will be very useful.

There are all these books. Books I bought,
books from the library.
We all know reading makes you a better writer.

And I’ll write more morning pages.
That’s so satisfying, the feeling of the pen gliding on ink.
And it kind of counts as writing.

And now I am writing a poem about procrastinating.
To put off the inevitable decision making,
second guessing, overthinking.

But once this is done, I will start.

    This all sounds so familiar, Agnes. I'm like that when I go to bed. The more tired I am the more distractions I will find. A lovely read.

    lol Agnes I can relate big time, sadly I have little time for writing and even less time for soup and one contest poem I've written about 2 weeks ago I can't locate which is even more infuriating - I've got to check my tablet then start delving into notebooks to see where this pesky poem is - the contest will be closed before I find it lol:-) hugs jan xx
