This is not part of the continuing story from A to Z [link to the beginning].
I’m writing this to keep up with the Challenge of posting regularly, because I’m tenacious as hell once I commit to something, but feel free to skip it if you’re only here for the fiction.
Today was one of those days where real life demanded a disproportionate amount of my time and attention and focus. Not necessarily anything good or bad (actually, it was a little bit of both but mostly a whole lot in between), just the kind of stuff that sometimes throws you off your game. It happens.
I realize it sounds ridiculous to say this, given that I’m making up a story and posting it in real time — I mean, c’mon, who am I to pretend I’m meeting some high literary standard here — but I refuse to post something that feels to me like it’s half-assed. And sitting here tonight with my thoughts all scattered, that’s how the writing feels. Not going to inflict that on the world.
However, there are still *looks at clock* roughly 23 hours left in the day, in my time zone. It is Potentially Possible that I’ll Put up a Post for the letter P that is Part of the story before this day fades into the Past. Perhaps.
Or maybe we’ll just carry on tomorrow with the letter Q. Oh dear god, I have to come up with a story-appropriate word for the letter Q. *headdesk*
P is for Pause
