5am Writer’s Club Challenge – Day Three

July 23, 2020 admin 0Comment

Day Two was tricky. But today was a hard one. Let's get right into it.


4:45 - Oh god. Is that my alarm? I'm absolutely exhausted.

4:46 - How am I this tired? I remember getting distracted watching Marvel movie clips before I went to bed last night, but that shouldn't have done this. I only fell asleep 30 minutes later than expected! How did that make me this tired?

4:46 - OK, no big deal. I'll just take a ten minute power nap, then I'll get up. Power naps are supposed to trick your brain into feeling more alert.

5:15 - OH DAMN IT.

5:16 - Why do I always tell myself it'll just be a ten minute nap? It's never a ten minute nap!

5:17 - There. At least the computer's on. All I need to do is start typing.

5:18 - How do I start typing?

5:19 - Seriously. I'm so tired right now, that's actually a question.

5:20 - Wait... got it.

5:23 - Three minutes of writing? That's seriously all I've got in me today?

5:24 - I'll just throw an assassin into the plot. Yes, doing that won't make any sense, but it'll at least give me something to write about.

5:34 - Now my stomach hurts. I'm trying to write while I'm sleepy and my stomach hurts. This is the worst agony that anyone has ever experienced ever.

5:35 - Actually, now that I think about it, I got to bed an hour and a half later than usual. That explains some things.

5:36 - OK, time to go crazy. Let's toss a brothel in here.

5:37 - Wait, that doesn't work for the story. We're in an administrative building talking about paperwork.

5:38 - What if I have a brothel owner filing some paperwork with the zoning department?

6:25 - WHY DID THAT WORK? WHY DID THAT WORK? Why is my brain like this? Yes, OK, that part did turn out pretty good. I'm still disappointed in myself. Somehow.


Three days down, four to go. I'll see you all tomorrow.
