I love Oxymorons.
They fascinate me. Sometimes they are really funny, sometimes serious and often thought provoking. Here is a brilliant one I came across recently in our daily newspaper. It speaks volumes to writers.
Writers take note: procrastination will kill your writing career.
Stop dithering and get on with it.
Go on – stop wasting time here and get on with your writing.
- Oxymorons – an article I wrote some time ago explaining what they are, with some examples.
Good writing: and stop putting it off.
Thanks for the reminder.
I am a procrastination queen.
I will get going on the 30 exercises right away instead of having a sleep.Well maybe I could do both.
Thanks for the comment Angela.
I notice that you’re A procrastination queen – not THE procrastination queen. Just as well – otherwise I’d have to address you as Your Majesty.
Writing while you sleep???? Now – there’s a thought! Wouldn’t it be “luvverly” if you woke up each morning and the writing pixies had been busy all night on your keyboard?? Sure to be nothing but fairy tales though.
Say – there’s another story idea – WHAT IF you wrote a story about pixies writing your story while you slept?? See – I’m full of ideas!
And pleeeeze – do not say I’m off with the pixies! That would be fairy insulting and damaging to my elf-esteem.
