Solution

The writing, despite all my good intentions, has been going very slowly.  

I’m tempted to say it’s not my fault, but that would be a lie and I’m only that bad a liar in the minute and a half after I’m woken from a dead sleep.

Today, I’m at work. This means my mentality is that I can’t get writing done, despite the fact that so far all I’ve done is answer eight phone calls and make an announcement. I’ve been here for an hour and a half.

So, since I’m stuck on the writing and nothing types out on the screen reading anywhere near as good as I know it should AND I’m at work, obviously the day is shot as far as writing. That is, writing anything good.

Which is why I’m dedicating today (aside from the times when I have to, you know, pay attention to the job they’re paying me for) to writing as much horrible drivel as I can dredge up.

That’s my goal: Terrible writing. All day. I might not even try to punctuate correctly. (gasp!) I certainly won’t even dream of deathless prose. I will kill my prose at every possible opportunity.

What do you need to do badly today, just so you can say you got it done?
