DAY 4 PROMPT- BUSY 

I apologize for not posting promptly; however, my laptop became most unaccommodating. Now I’m crazy busy playing catch up on a new one. In fact, I’ve been so busy that I’m starting Terri Giuliano Long’s Blog Flash 2012 challenge by breaking the rules and posting a tiny, apropos, 10-word haiku:

Juggling tons of tasks

Between the priorities

Laptop up and died

I enjoy writing haiku and have just discovered 10×10’s, so  you might see more of them as I challenge myself.

Drop on by Terri’s blog to read other participants’ blogs and fabulous posts. Follow along on Twitter: @tglong or Facebook: #BlogFlash.

I’ll be adding daily posts of this challenge for the month of August and hopefully, my writings will improve! After all, that’s why I accepted the challenge in the first place. :0)

As always, thanks for stopping by!

    A very appropriate haiku. I don’t know what’s worse, a laptop dying or getting a virus that eats all your data – I’ve had both!

    I really enjoyed your take on the prompt!

    I love the haiku! One of the things I’m enjoying so much about #BlogFlash2012 is the great variety of pieces.

      Thanks so much for commenting Terri. I’m newly published and just beginning to put myself ‘out there’ to challenge myself. I’ve got a lot of fine-tuning work to do, so I truly appreciate this opportunity of daily writing prompts and meeting new writer friends! I thought your today piece was quite witty! :0)

    Oh the pain of a dead laptop…I collapsed into a messy heap when my hard drive fried a few weeks ago! Love the haiku!

      Thanks for popping over Kris. Your ‘Fuck’ piece was wild! I didn’t comment but I tweeted and back-linked. Now up at 4 to try and get #7 done. I’m new to this but I like it! We did 86Poet 10×10 together :0)
