NaPoWriMo Day 9: Our (optional) prompt for the day is to write a poem in the form of a “to-do list.” The fun of this prompt is to make it the “to-do list” of an unusual person or character. 

I couldn’t let go of the opportunity to create a to-do list for myself since I have been procrastinating on not making one for aeons. So took some leeway and didn’t create one for an unusual character when I need to fix my own unusualness first. Let me know if you find something relatable or have any other opinions!

  1. This was INCREDIBLE. It literally has everything you need for a happy life. I looked up procrastination in the dictionary (procrastinated on it the first time). I felt like my mind wrote this one for me in specific words to follow after being tired of my procrastination. So apt.

  2. Perhaps the best way to let go of the stress represented by a to-do list is to tear it up and start a new one. And if you start a new one, and don’t tear up the old one, then you have two… The mark of a procrastinator.
    At the top of my 47th list is, stop making to-do lists so you can live in the moment and check some of them off 🙂
