I should really be getting on with work. But I’m not. Instead I’m refreshing the DailyPost homepage waiting for a new daily prompt to appear.
‘What’s this?’ I ask already knowing the answer, ‘a new prompt!’
But what will the prompt be? Write about a life experience you shared with a stranger? Write about the first pet you ever owned & lost? Write about the mug that you always default to if your cupboards are full and you’re about to make a fresh pot of coffee?…
…write about something you know you should do…but don’t.
‘Oh.’ I think, ‘I know what I should be doing but now that I don’t need to check for the daily prompt I can fill my time with writing a response to the daily prompt!’
Daily prompt checked? – check.
Daily prompt responded to? – check.
Back to work (and waiting 24hrs until tomorrows).
