Overcoming Bloglessness

Workers and Slackers


Daily Prompt: The Heat is On.

Do you thrive under pressure or crumble at the thought of it? Does your best stuff surface as the deadline approaches or do you need to iterate, day after day to achieve something you’re proud of? Tell us how you work best.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us PRESSURE.

I’m a worker. I can’t help it. I work at the same pace no matter the circumstances. I put pressure on myself to always do my best.
It makes work more interesting if you’re thinking about the most efficient way to get the job done.

Slackers don’t care about pride in a job well done. They’re just putting in their time, riding the gravy train, sometimes expending more energy avoiding work than it would take to actually do the work. They can do a half-assed job and call it good. They’re the biggest whiners and complainers too. It’s not faaair! I have to do everything!

Slackers think conscientious workers are brown-nosers.

Workers think slackers are lazy cheaters.

For many years I have suffered from debilitating bloglessness, only writing in my head, while everyone else posted and shared with ease. Previous attempts at recovery have failed, my secret journals edited to death, pages torn out, crumpled and trashed. I will not succumb to this embarassing condition. I will continue to struggle against the rampant backspacing and endless blank staring. I refuse to relapse into the void that is bloglessness. I can do it. I am doing it. I am Overcoming Bloglessness.
