A Day in the Life of a Writer

ROUGH DRAFT

today did not start well –

reason being because i didn’t get to sleep –

it was too hot – i couldn’t decide on what to eat

so spent a great deal of time getting up off of the sofa

and putting my face in the fridge –

i didn’t feel tired – at 6 o’clock in the morning

as an insomniac –

you learn different levels of tiredness –

and their intensity

my mind turned to today’s tasks –

shower being number one

and two, getting the bed sheets and pillow cases into the wash

i turned on my laptop

for it to promptly turn itself off

because i forgot to charge it yesterday

i managed to find the charger for my laptop, out of the plethora i own –

from tech i probably traded in years ago –

 

and could put the charger into the plug socket

without trying it the wrong way first –

my assumption was i cannot be that tired

if i am getting this right

i thought today i would send a manuscript

to an open call from a publisher –

and edit a poem to send into a contest.
