James Proclaims (4)

Dear James,

You’ve fallen behind with ‘Writing 101’ again, when all you had to do was write a letter. It literally could have been to anyone and about anything. I know you were busy last Thursday , but seriously, couldn’t you have found a bit of time to just write a short satirical letter to someone fictional?

Like your arch-nemesis.

Or a product on which you have a worrying dependency.

Like coffee.

Or novelty potato-based snacks.

You could have been all pretentious and written to a concept.

Like pretentiousness.

Perhaps a letter to unnecessary pedants is overdue. You know they always get you worked up.

But you just decided to procrastinate instead didn’t you? And because of your deferment you ended up missing Friday’s task as well.

And you didn’t even bother to catch up over the weekend, choosing instead to watch back-to-back rugby games.

Admittedly there were some good games, but there still would have been time to write something.

And now Monday has arrived and there’s yet another task to do and your refusal to publish more than one post a day on your stupid blog means that you’ll definitely be behind until next weekend.

And yet you still haven’t written the letter.

I’m very disappointed in you.

Yours sincerely

  1. Dear James, kick Procastinator out of the house till the weekend. I know him very well. He is a thief of time and anytime he comes to visit my house, a whole lot of stuff just go wrong and missing even. He is only good company over the holidays, that idling never do well! Now get to work 🙂
