Alpha? Betty! Call!

A challenge is set, to write a short story in twenty-six lines. By starting each sentence with the next letter of the alphabet, starting with the letter ‘A’, the challenge will be met.
Call me arrogant but this should be a walk in the park. Daily blog posts and loving writing as much as I do support that arrogance and make it less of a challenge and more of a work of craft. Even so, it is good to keep a large amount of humility in hand.
For me, freedom of speech is more about having the ability to write, than being allowed to say what I want. Government and politics bore me, so that probably has a lot to do with it. However, that does not mean I don’t hold an opinion on either, or both.
I get side-tracked easily. Just like that. Know what I mean? Like the time that…oh, but wait, I digress!
Most of my missed deadlines are due to being side-tracked. Nowadays I try and minimise that, but it doesn’t always work. Often I end up just staying late at the office.
Priorities! Quite right! Should I ignore these, in the face of an inspirational avalanche? Try as I might, I cannot always overlook creativity in the moment, at the expense of duty, in the main.
Understanding this is key to keeping both monsters fed. Virtually or in reality, I often divert into Alternity. Where else?
X-Files would do good to do an episode on MY mindspace!
Yes, yes I think so!
Zebras would be a lazy way to end this, and so would zygote.
