WEP: Only 28 Days Left

January 20, 2019:

I’m sitting in a comfy chair staring at the screen. Only 28 days left…

‘Ping!’ I pull down the notification screen to see that movie download has been completed. I immediately hit play.

February 5, 2019:

Whoosh, just got home. I open my bag and pull out my phone, only to see that HUGE list of things to do. Time to get busy…

February 15, 2019:

Ok, tight deadline. I’m staring at the screen again.

**IDEA!**

February 16, 2019:

Done! My article for WEP February is finally done.

  2. I enjoyed your story. It’s really short so I read it a few times. I think it’s about the cycle of writing and submitting to WEP or any other blog. It’s the process of coming up with an idea, writing it out, and then doing it all again, right? In any case, nicely done. Also, be sure to submit your link to the main WEP page in the comments so more people can read your story. http://writeeditpublishnow.blogspot.com/2019/01/wepiwsg-first-challenge-of-2019-sign-up.html

  6. I love that you made this as brief as the month, a clever device. And I love that you got the idea with a sort of “Ping!” like the downloaded movie.

    1. Always trust a movie for some juicy stories (at least that’s what I think)

  7. Hello Bernadette!
    That was an interesting way to look at the challenge! I think the prompt caused many of us to have a deep think about how to approach it.
    Thank you for participating!
    (Your blog wouldn’t let me choose the account I wanted, so I used Twitter. Not much good for this!) This is where you’ll find me!

  14. LOL, now that’s my kind of procrastination. Except its computer games that “I’ll only play for 15 minutes” that keep me from writing and posting.
