The 2021 Daily Writing Challenge – January 15


Have you ever had a fire drill day? That was my yesterday. No matter how much I plan, arrange, and schedule every task to ensure I meet or exceed my promised deliverables, not everyone is as conscientious. Deadlines loom, and it dawns on the Eleventh-hour Edmund and Ellies that they have twenty-four hours to complete a week’s worth of work. For some unfathomable reason, their faulty strategies become my headache.

I have adopted a familiar mantra which says, “A lack of planning on your part does not necessitate an emergency on mine.” The problem with that mindset is it often neglects to consider extenuating circumstances. Sometimes being a team player is the best option.

Despite other people’s emergencies, I maintain the item at the top of my list as a non-negotiable. Yesterday I wrote 289 words.

Did you write yesterday?


Keep on writing.
