One Thousand Word Challenge 135: A Mess Under Nine Minutes

And so now The Internet is working here again so what I’m going to do is race myself and see once more how fast I can get this done, which is what I always do, but I’m going to aim for under that time limit of the minutes of eight (or was it nine?) and we’ll see what happens.

Of course I do not know as to what will happen other than I will get this finished, but of course that is something that of course is something that we all know will happen, though you won’t if I don’t finish this as if I don’t finish this I will scrap the whole thing and then that will be that, and therefore there will be no seeing this. However, I will know that I wrote it, though I will inevitably forget that I wrote it and then it will no longer exist as something other than a vague memory that will crop up at some point in the future.

It will be a small blip in a lengthy life where many things don’t happen (and some thing do), but that is the way that these things go sometimes and that is not something I plan to try and control too much as there are other things that I need to consider at the moment, such as getting this done in the manner of timeliness that I am trying to get this done in, so therefore there will be some doing of this, and maybe, just maybe, there will be very little doing of anything else other than this. We’ll just have to see how it all pans out, though if it even does pan out to anything at all, I will be most pleased. Or something.

So I’m up to this point and already I am stressing a little. Well, maybe that is not the most accurate thing to say. I’m not really feeling the stress, bunt I certainly am feeling a bit of pain in my right wrist, but maybe I can push through. Maybe I can stubbornly persevere. I’m not sure just as to if I can yet, but we’ll see. Maybe I will get there and maybe I will get through the whole thing. Maybe I won’t. Still plenty of uncertainty to go, but soon that will be a hurdle not so much leapt over so much as broken through.

Maybe I won’t get under the minutes of eight, but I do know that I will at least get under the minutes of sixty. Then again, maybe I will slow right on down and then I won’t be able to keep pace and suddenly this will take far, far longer than I had anticipated. There are so many possibilities to consider and this is but one of them, but of course so long as I keep on going and overcome what minor adversity I run into, I’m sure that I will be able to get to the end of this and then… something.

So anyway, now I’m up to this point and the struggle has become quite apparent. This is something that I hoped would sink in later, for there still is quite a way to go, but of course there is no telling when struggle will happen, so you do your best and you keep on pushing on in the hopes that you get to the end sooner rather than later. We’ll, you hope that you get to the end as you’ve come this far and you don’t want to scrap the whole thing, but maybe you do. Maybe you just want to throw it all away and call it a day and go back to bed. You can’t, but you might just have to do so for various reasons. Still, you keep on going. Now, by “you”, I mean “I”, referring to me. I’m not going to go back and edit that as I’ve come too far and I don’t want to as I’m lazy and that would take up more time and time is what I’m trying to get ahead of at the moment.

You can’t get ahead of time, however. You can move within time and move alongside it, but you can’t move past it, for it is always steady and it never tires; it just keeps on going. However, I tired, but right now I am yet to tire and therefore I might just be able to do this and get to the end of it and then find the whole thing finished within a timely manner. Of course I hope that is what happens, but I don’t know fi that is indeed what will happen.

I need to move much, much faster at the moment, but I don’t know if I can. Had I started with a more full keyboard, then maybe. Maybe I would be able to move faster. However, I am not and so therefore I am making quite a few mistakes, but I keep on pushing on.

Of course, you won’t see those mistakes, but right now I know they exist and they will haunt me for the rest of my time bothering to do this, for I know I will have to clean them up later and that is never something that I consider as being fun in any way, shape or form. Oh well. Such is the way of things.

Just realised that it is under nine minutes and now I have a second wind of sorts. This is a good thing and it means that I  can get to the end. I’m not out  for the count just yet. I will get there so long as I remain furious and righteous all toward the end of this. I can get there and I can beat the clock. Maybe I cannot defeat time, but today time will not defeat me, or something.

Maybe we’ll reach a draw and then I’ll go and rest a little while.

The time it took to write one thousand words: 08:57:46

Quite content with the speed, though of course it helped to create this mess of words.
Maybe next time I’ll aim for under eight minutes.

Written at home.
