Haiku Challenge – Day 44 Posting Challenge – Day45

I am still managing ten vaguely haiku-like verses a day.

My problem at the moment is tiredness and lack of subjects. I’m not able to much nature at the moment and crows, bare branches and yellow leaves can get boring in the end. If I’m bored it’s likely that readers will be bored too.

The haibun are not going ell either – I’ve written a few but can’t seem to edit and finish them.

It’s not easy finding the time to write as my normal quiet time is after 10 pm and at that time I’m mainly driving Number Two Son to work. Then I try working at midnight, fall asleep in the chair, wake cold, sleep badly, feel tired all the next day and feel guilty at my lack of achievement.

As for the posting challenge – I’m having to resort to quick posts to ensure I manage something each day. Short, quick posts like this one.

I must take stock of my life and my writing.

Off to take Number Two Son to work now.

Today at work we discussed starting a tribute band to take account of our various talents – and so OCD/C was born.

You have to write it like that to make it more obvious. We all laughed at it, though the customers mainly looked blank at us.
