She Justified Procrastination With Flimsy Excuses

Book still unfinished. Blogging wins again.

“You’re incoherent!” they scoffed.
“No, look.”

Though mediocre, she entered them anyway:

Married in haste. Repenting at leisure.

Kittens are harmless! (Sophie’s last words.)

Upon tasting, discovered it was manure.

“I wasn’t always a woman, Darling.”

Never was cutting toenails so fatal.

Their final course was Roger sorbet.

No bright light – atheists were right!

Her heart sank. Fish ate it.

The first and last are particularly chucklesome. Very good!

Steven King in six words? Wow!

Unfortunately I can identify with 'Book still unfinished. Blogging wins again.'

Very nice :)

Incidentally, are you a NaNoWriMo participant by any chance?

Thanks for the kind words =)Foodkitty, you should enter. I've heard of NaNoWriMo Scott, but don't really know what it is...

NaNoWriMo = National Novel Writing Month (see It's a free writing contest which takes place each November, where you're encouraged to write a 50,000 word piece of fiction - from scratch, pre-commenced novels need not apply - in a month.

Difficult, demanding and lots of fun.

Dear God! It sounds like something guaranteed to tip me over the edge into an ocean of crazy. ;)

P.S. What the hell? I can't even read my own word verification.

Thanks for your comments and your comment :-)

Thanks for putting some meat in your profile, too. (Loved the Princess Bride which was on my to-see list for years -- and I got the DVD filled with comments on sale when Tower Records closed last year.)
