Last week's link-up asked us to flex our creative writing muscles a bit and create a short story or poem. There were some really amazing posts - some gave me the heebie-jeebies, some tugged at the heartstrings. Click here to see the posts from last week!
This week's prompt is as follows:
We want to know more about YOU. Come share what your typical day is like. Use any format you wish!
Don't forget, you have a week to link up! If you have not prepared a post for today, feel free to join us tomorrow or in a few days. We'd love to see what you come up with!
P.S. Have you joined the Write or Die Book Club yet? It's a quarterly book club focused on books about writing, creativity, inspiration, and more! We hope you'll join us! Click on the photo below to cast your vote for our first book. We'll begin reading on April 1st.
Did anybody else just say to themselves: "Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives"? No? *crickets*
I wish I could tell you that my typical day was super exciting. Filled with champagne, shopping sprees, and being personally serenaded by Adam Levine. But alas, I cannot tell a lie.
Here's my uber boring day, relayed as a poem. Because rhyming.
5:00am: Alarm goes ring, ring, ring. "FML!" is what I'm thinking. Again and again I hit the snooze, and so begins my morning blues.
6:00am: I'm all dressed, but I'm still stressed. Into my boys' rooms I silently creep, where they are both still sound asleep. Wake up, it's time to go! "Oh Mommy, I don't want to. No, no, no!"
6:40am: The time has come to begin my commute. I pop in a CD by Eric Church - HOT dang, that man is cute!
7:30am(~ish): I arrive at work, my computer goes on. I give a deep sigh and stifle a yawn.
8:00am: It's time to eat my breakfast, if I remember to bring it. But you can bet your booty that I'll have coffee - I never forget to drink it.
11:00am: It's time for lunch. I like to eat early, I like it a bunch. I check out my blog planner while I eat. I forgot to write a post for tomorrow - holy sheet!
4:00pm: It's finally time to leave for the day. Say it with me now, HIP HIP HOORAY! I get in my car and begin my homeward drive. Mark off another day of work that I survived.
5:00pm: I pick up the boys and we go home to eat. After that, Dom has to do homework - he thinks it's SO neat.
6:30pm: We settle down in the living room and turn on the tv. "I want to watch Octonauts!" says Will, my baby.
8:30pm: The house is quiet and I use my time to write or read without fail. I may even send to my friends some colorful mail.
10:30pm: I talk on the phone with my hubby. He's hard at work, but has time to tell me he loves me. I know I should sleep, but slumber eludes me. So I turn on the tv and watch whatever is on - I'm not choosy.
12:30am: I suppose the time has come for me to say good night. My alarm will go off again soon - that beastly piece of shite.
If you're still awake after reading that post, give the comments section a shout. This concludes my "day in the life" - I'm over and out!
