Five-Hundred Word Challenge 407: What a Conundrum

Oh my, it is past nine in the morning by at least two hours and I’ve yet to be motivated to do much of anything at all.

What a conundrum this just so happens to be, even though it is not a conundrum whatsoever!

At least I get to warm up now, as opposed to later.

However, why would I be warming up now when I should have done so earlier on in the day?

Well, the answer is simple, really: I am being lazy and now need to get started on an assignment that is due very shortly.

Will I get the assignment done in the allotted time?

Perhaps it is a little too early to say.

Well, I have a feeling that I will be able to get it done soon, so long as I focus hard on making sure that I complete everything that I need to complete as soon as possible, then work on extraneous material.

That is the process that I really should follow. However, I don’t think that that will be how the whole thing eventuates, for I imagine that at one point I will waffle on about something that does not matter for no reason whatsoever.

Although, perhaps that will be the secret to getting the best of marks from the assignment that must be completed this afternoon.

Perhaps in going on about things that don’t matter for the assignment, the graders will recognise some sort of secret genius, not knowing that I was trying to fill in space and make myself look intelligent.

Perhaps that is the way to the path and the path forward will be found by going that way. I think that indeed, I must go on about things that are not pertinent to the assignment and that will carry the most weight toward getting the best marks that I can possibly get for a task so grandiose and magnificent that it will lead to glorious times only held near a torch when approaching the darkness with no fear and only intent.

Perhaps I am dreaming of things that are not going to happen. However, it is good to dream and so long as I can keep on doing so, a few more words that will lead to the end of this sentence.

Perhaps, instead of going on about what I could and couldn’t do and hoping that somehow I will come out on top, I should just focus on getting the thing done and making sure that it is as concise as possible, for that will surely lead me to the grade that I would have earned in this instance.

Perhaps I could do that. Perhaps it is a good idea.

Maybe I should stop writing and start writing, in that order.

Maybe I should stop procrastinating and get on with getting on.

With that being said, I’m feeling a little peckish.

Wait. No I’m not.

I am just trying to waste time for no justifiably good reason.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 06:54:40

This one is not that great, but I was treating it more as a warm up exercise than anything else.

Written in the attic.
