An Essential Writing Tip From Charlie Brown

{Thank you, Tim Fall, for directing me to this video today. This is SO me right now. :)}


If I start writing now
When I'm not really rested,
It could upset my thinking --
Which is not good at all!
I'll get a fresh start tomorrow.
And it's not due till Wednesday,
So I'll have all of Tuesday --
Unless something should happen.
Why does this always happen?
I should be outside playing!
Getting fresh air and sunshine!
I work best under pressure.
And there'll be lots of pressure
If I wait till tomorrow.
I should start writing now.
But if I start writing now,
When I'm not really rested,
It could upset my thinking --
Which is not good at all!

  1. I played Linus in our HS production of YaGM,CB (type-casting?). Not quite as well done as that video you linked, Adriana!

    1. You're welcome! It was kind of Tim Fall to point me to it. He always knows how to make me smile. If you hang around his blog for any length of time, you'll see what I mean. :)
