Plotting (Or Supposed To)

 
I’m pretty much a procrastinator
Still, knowing that, what do I do
when I’m supposed to be tying loose ends
yet here I am, killing time with you.

I really should be working
for I’ve got so many things to do –
Stories to write and plot away
instead of dreaming dreams with you.

The novel won’t write itself, I’m sure
though it may not have much choice
when I while away my time off the page
my poor characters find their voice,

and run off with the story
it’s the only thing they can do
as I finally chase after them with pen and pencil
and write their story the way I was meant to.

I'd love to hear what you think!
