Scrumptious scrutiny.

Caring for madness.


Stress Management – Not getting work done

Basically, i can already say i fail at challenges and such. Not because i cant write, but mostly because my luck runs out after some time.

Im just going to be griping from here on in, but for the most part, I’m calling my attempt at the A to Z 2016 challenge has cascaded into a failing wrecked mess. Not for lack of trying.

No, its due to a lack of stress management. Not writing stress. Other obligations kind of stress. The ol 9 to 5 is getting, well, old. Bad. Like its bad when i cant do my own work cause nobody wants to do theirs kind of bad. It sucks, but it is a major part of why i cant get any writing done. Wish my hours were 9 to 5 every day, haha!

Other than that, i do hope to get back to standard content soon. Take care.


“I have this letter for you, sir.”

A letter, now that was rare. I hoped it was from my dear aunt May from England. But holding the letter, there was no addresser. But curiosity caught hold, and i opened the envelope and pulled the single vellum sheet from within.

“Dear Michael Kent Warchester III,”

“I regrettably write to inform you that your dear aunt, Mariland Warchester, has passed. It happened quickly, in her sleep. Her will demands your immediate arrival and attention, as you are the last known living relative.”

My aunt had passed. I swallowed the heartache and continued reading.

“If you do not arrive by the end of summer, all items and estates will be delegated to a suitable person. Such person is a rival of your family and mine. Hurry, please.”

All that was undersigned was an elegantly written “K”. I knew I needed to depart immediately. I shove the letter into my jacket pocket, kept my pain swallowed, and thanked internally this mysterious K.

Firing up them engines,
Revving loudly, staring ahead
Opponent besides, also igniting
Red light, yellow light, green light

Sweat beading, speeding faster
Burning through fuel on an empty tank.
Wheels turning at a burning rate.
Everything is blurring around.

Checkered flag in sight.

Writer’s Block or Over Worked?

Bound to be one of the two above.

I do apologize for not keeping up with my usual posting schedule. I normally dont have much issues with small writings, like for the A to Z challenge I took on for the month. But for some reason, the past few days really knocked me for a loop.

Will catch up posts in the next two days and get back on track for the challenges and my usual content as soon as possible. Hope everyone is doing well!
