Need to work on my story

Oooh... coffee's ready

Dog wants out

Five minutes later....

Need to work on my story

Hmmm... bathroom first

Hey, need toilet paper ...

Toilet needs a good scrubbing

Ten minutes later ...

Dog wants in

Need to work on my story

But ..., breakfast ...

Dang! Out of eggs

Need to run to the corner store

Forty-five minutes later ...

Dog wants out

Five minutes later...

Dog wants in

Need to work on my story

What's that on the News?

Wild fires in Hawaii being investigated...

Hey, The Voice finale

Dog wants out

Dog wants in

Three hours later ...

Need to work on my story

This laptop is a pain. So slow

Eighteen minutes later ...

Finally. But.... need a sandwich

Laptop finally loaded, tummy happy ...

Dog taking a nap

Need to work on my story

Oops.. Time to pick up the kids...

Two hours Seventeen minutes later

Gotta help make dinner

Ninety minutes later...

Gotta work on my story

What's that? Go for ice cream?

One hour forty-five minutes later

Dog wants out

Dog wants in

Forty-eight minutes later...

Wrote a paragraph.

Must be writer's block.

Better luck tomorrow
