Flash Friday 55: Writing, Working...

Typing away when it's 8 at night
wondering if words will come out right.
I don't know why I procrastinate
when it means I'll be writing at 8!

For I work weekends: 12 hour days!
Done, in part, for the money it pays.
There's more, though, than people see...
this work's also meaningful to me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am participating in Flash Friday 55. This weekly meme is brought to you by G-Man, over at Mr. Know it All. The object is to write a story or prose in exactly 55 words. Come join us and link your 55 in Mr. Know it All's comment section. See you there!

I am off for another weekend at the hospital! Be sure to come back Sunday when I have a guest blogger for Sacred Sunday! See you all after the weekend!

We played the game, asking ourselves what we would do if we won the Powerball! If we would work, and what would we do? Unfortunately, even though I instructed Dave to bring home the winning ticket, specifically, he did not.

It really is wonderful to be able to do work that has meaning for you. When I was in the hospital, they called your counterpart "The Thumper," as in: "Better use that spirometer! You don't want a visit from The Thumper!"

I am only recently discovering the joy of writing. Hubby and I just started an experiment involving writing prompts yesterday and it's interesting to see the vastly different things we each come up with from the same prompt.

Glad you've got a meaningful job, I used to hope...

Loved the opening too, I know all about procrastination. And as for me, my mind often awakens at midnight, and that's when I need to write...

My 55 is The Pages of Every Book

12 hour days...oh, Polly, how do you do it, along with parenting, church, cooking AND daily blogging?? That is truly impressive.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Twelve hour days! Yikes! Get some rest when you can.

Nice 55!

You are such a great writer. You truly have a gift with words and I love coming over and reading and being jealous of your skills,lol

Fabulous 55! I'm so impressed by this assignment...seems impossible to this newby. I've run across some others in my travels across blogland, and they all blow me away. Me thinks I've got lots to learn. But I do love a challenge ;-)
