926 Breathless Accomplishments

Relentless much this 9 to 6:
Notes, reports, another news, the internet, bulletin hour.
In shops shelved stock; trains late, on track.
Getting so much done!

This morning I read a up to item ten of a list nearing thirty on essential tips for blogging. In order to create a more magnetic headlines (item #8), take your title and preface it with a number and an adjective. For those who like a formula: Number+Adjective+Title. This poem’s initial title was ‘Getting done,’ an echo of the last line and a nod to how restaurants ask one how you like your meat cooked. ‘Accomplishments’ sounded appropriate for a title and a January poem about real world productivity. The rest fell into place according to the formula.
