The Writing Clock


My writing is at the 8 o'clock mark, which means I'm at the pathetic stage. You know how the writing clock goes, don't you?

1:00 = I am off to a fabulous start. Darn, I'm good.

2:00 = I love the way my beginning scenes are coming together. There's fire in my veins.

3:00 = I can write! My readers will love this. I'm even keeping my office neat and tidy.

4:00 = I don't feel like writing today. Help me, Lord.

5:00 = I'm in a dry spell, but I will write because I AM A WRITER!

6:00 = Where was I going with this story? Gotta reread the entire STUPID thing!

7:00 = This stinks so bad I have to put a clothespin on my nose while I write.

8:00 = I cannot write. My readers will hate this. My office is starting to smell like dirty socks.

9:00 = Yow! I have to start winding this down! This is worse than the underside of a bad quilt.

10:00 = Where did all these loose ends come from? God, I need SUPER DIVINE WISDOM!

11:00 = I see it! I see it! It's coming together. Thank you, Lord!

12:00 = The End! I can't imagine putting myself through this again, but, alas, another story is brewing.
