Five-Hundred Word Challenge 323: The Procrastination Beast Returns

Fun, excitement, games.

It is back and with a vengeance it cuts swathes through my armies that were set up to prevent it form arriving.

I have an essay to write and I don’t need the almighty beast looming over me once more.

Oh yes. It is that one. The one with the unmentionable name.

The one that comes and stalks me in the night when I need to sleep or study. The one that comes during the day when I am preparing to write for lengthy periods of time.

the one that terrorises the women and tortures the men.

It is the one know by only one name:


Without fail it has returned. Nothing could stop it from awakening from its slumber, for it chooses as to when it will rise. There is nothing that will prevent it from doing so. It may be prolonged, but eventually the evil beast of burden will rise once more to wreak havoc on everything that it can before it goes back to rest.

This is a cycle that has been occurring for far longer than we can imagine. It is like life in that it is a continuous cycle that seems to have no end in sight.

Perhaps one day it will, but for now it will not. Like history, it will repeat itself and it will continue to grip and enslave me, no matter how many times I slay this horrible menace to my soul.

Perhaps I could try and ignore it, but it will continue to push harder if I do. I must let it have its way with my efforts before I can try and fell it once more.

Perhaps I should try and attack it now whilst it is preventing me from doing the assignment work that I need to do. There is always a chance that there will be some form of success if I do. there is always a chance that I will be most victorious.

Either that or I could stop crapping on and get back to doing the study that I need to do, for there is a lot to do as there always is, and as always there is little time to get all that need to be done done in a timely manner.

There will be things that suffer, but that is inevitable. I could somehow slay the beast and at least get as much as I can get done done and then do better in other things, but at the same time making sure that the things I don’t do as well in get done at least well to some extent.

Yes,m perhaps that is the way to go. Stop crapping on and get back to doing the things that need to be done. It does seem like a good idea and it is one that is probably easy to execute.

Well, I guess it is time to begin, for if not now, then when would be a good time?

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 06:04:15

Actually had to warm up before I started typing away at this essay.

Written at university.
