5am Writer’s Club Challenge – Day Four
I'm up to Day Four in the challenge, and I'm not expecting great things.
Who knows what today will bring.
4:14 - …am I awake?
4:15 - I'm awake! I'm exhausted, but I'm awake.
4:16 - Should I try to sleep in a little bit longer? It sounds dangerous, but I'm still pretty tired and it's way too early to get started.
4:50 - Did I just take a nap that actually refreshed me?
4:51 - OK it's time to get up.
4:52 - Wait. Should I do a load of laundry first?
5:00 - I mean, I ran the wash last night, so I should probably toss the wet stuff into the dryer.
5:10 - But I've already got stuff in the dryer, and I do need to treat that piece of chiffon I bought for the project with the BLAST IT I NEED TO GET STARTED!
5:15 - OK, the computer's on. I just need to start typing my… should I brush my teeth first?
5:16 - NO. I am NOT falling for that again! JUST. START. WRITING.
5:50 - … have I've been writing this whole time? Once I ignored my dental hygiene for five minutes, I was able to immediately get into the flow? This is amazing! My brain is really cooking today!
5:51 - Oh no. Please tell me I didn't jinx myself…
5:52 - No, I can get the thread back. I just need to reread this part again…
5:55 - Wait. What was I doing?
5:56 - Blast it, I am not getting writer's block now. Just keep writing.
5:57 - Huh. Wasn't there a baby in this story? Technically it should be a toddler, since it's been about two years since the birth. But I don't want to go full "What Baby?" on this story. Especially since the kid is supposed to grow up and be someone.
6:14 - OK, the baby is still alive and not being used as a paperweight. I am rocking this writing thing.
6:15 - I did good today. I just need to stop writing.
6:20 - Stop writing.
6:35 - This is happening again tomorrow and there's laundry to be done - STOP WRITING.
I'll see everyone tomorrow for the birthday edition of this writing challenge. See you then!
