My post today will have to be brief. Obviously, I am
Consider this To Do list:
1. Laundry (I want to know why, when I go on vacation, the laundry does not take care of itself?)
2. Bills (Ditto)
3. Fight with university about bogus billing (I'll get right to that - in a moment)
4. Start supper (I am the queen of culinary delights!)
5. Write blog post (always job #1!)
6. Work on great Can-Am novel (definitely going to put in a few hours on this today!)
Oops! It looks like the jobs order is a little whacky there this morning. Obviously, item #5 ought to be item #1, but the truth is that the only item I have begun yet today is laundry, which is number one on the To Do list for this reason. However, writing the blog post is always job #1, so we have a slight conflict of priorities here.
Never mind. I always feel that too strict a reliance on lists and "priorities" can interfere with the creative process. I am sure that Those in the Know will agree! I will get to the items on the list

1. Write blog post (now, that is more like it!)
2. Laundry (consider the 3 loads already in progress as a bonus...I am out of there!)
3. Bills (that is ridiculous! Everyone knows that incredibly talented, struggling writers never pay bills!)
4. Start supper (Who can cook when literary history is being made? Takeout, bien sûr!)
5. Work on the great Can-Am novel (definitely as soon as this blog post is up, or at least soon after!)
That is all there is time for today, Dear Readers. Good day to All!
