It was a very lazy afternoon at work.  Monday to boot.  Despite good intentions to remove myself from the chair, to get up and do something - ANYTHING - I remained planted.  No motivation whatsoever.  After checking email yet again, and finding that no new messages had appeared in the last 30 seconds, I considered walking to the break room to buy a fraction-of-a-handful of gum from the 25¢ machine.  After much deliberation, the desire for sugar overruled my ass's submission to gravity.  So, I opened my wallet to retrieve a quarter, and stumbled upon THE highlight of my day. There it was, in shiny white wrapping, sporting colors and exuding the promise of deliciousness... a cherry blow pop!  It was a glorious, tasty surprise!  After fervently removing the wrapper, I shoved the thing in my mouth, enjoying instant fulfillment. Licking it just wouldn't do.  I bit right in, basking in the sweet crunching of solidified sugary confection between my teeth.  I took another bite, and then another.  Four bites later, I was pulling the gum from the stick, chewing away with glee!  The lollipop was effectively gone, but it served as a segway to productivity for the rest of the afternoon.



Welcome to Wordly Ink!  My name is Mel, and I've established this blog as a means to share my writing experiences, interests and services.  I am expecting my second child in just a few weeks, so the content may remain rather light for the next two months. The start the new year will bring order and flexibility on my end, and hence more posts!

Happy reading,
