This morning at 6am I woke up and the first sentence of a new story was in my head. It was either sleep in and lose the story or get up and write. So I got up. Then found my notebook and crawled back into bed to finish writing.
At 7.20am, I had finished scrawling and got up and showered. K still asleep so I made a cup of tea and sat down at the PC and typed it all up. 1500 words later and I was feeling quite chuffed.
K woke at about 8.15am, and I got her up at 8.30, after I finished typing the last few words.
It is a story for the competition with the theme, Heroes from Near and Afar. Just a bit of tweaking and a bit more detail, something I am rather sparing with on first drafts, and it should be ready to enter in January.
