Over three hours ago I sat down to write a story for this blog. Just 100 words. No big deal.
7 pm: Picked up a pencil and sketch pad (my writing tools). Realised I was low on paper. Spent 10 minutes ordering a new sketch pad online.
7.15 pm: Spent another 40 minutes browsing random junk on Amazon.
7.55 pm: Made a cup of tea. Checked email. Replied to emails. Organised emails into folders.
8.20 pm: Tinnitus irritating the hell out of me, so decided to search through YouTube to find the right music to block it out. Instead, watched a TED talk. Then another. And one more. Then watched some outtakes from Peter Kay’s Car Share.
9.50 pm: Finally found the right music. Pressed play. Laptop froze. Had to reboot. Accidentally put it into Safe Mode. Took forever to load back up.
10 pm: Made another cup of tea. Checked email. Replied to emails.
10.20 pm: Wrote half a sentence. Got stuck. Couldn’t think of the right word to use. Went to Dictionary.com for inspiration. Got sidetracked by Word of the Day (purloin, in case you were wondering). Spent five minutes reading about the origin of ‘purloin’. Still couldn’t find the word I wanted.
10.30 pm: Stared at the half a sentence I’d written. Realised I’m too tired to write a story now. I’m really annoyed with myself 😦
