Sit down at computer and open new document

Format document

Forget what I planned to write

Consult notebook for ideas

Reject all ideas

Do laundry

Decide writing is better than laundry

Sit down at computer

Reformat document with another font

Bookman Old Style this time

Hang out washing

Get distracted by birds

Abandon washing to consult bird book

Confirm birds are Australian Swiftlets

Return to clothes line and fight the wind

Sit down at computer

Change font to Century Gothic

Write one word

Give up

Make a note to write tomorrow
