So, since my blog is brand new, I thought what better way to break it in than to do the A to Z challenge, involving me posting a blog every day (excepting Sundays) throughout the month of April, each day corresponding to a letter of the alphabet. I have no idea yet what theme I will use for this challenge, or whether I'll even use a theme. I might just pick something random for every letter, or unrelated things that I'm very passionate about. :)
On an unrelated note, I'm so excited for pancake day tomorrow! I really love food (hey, maybe it'll be my F!) so I'm looking forward to a day of pigging out on pancakes!
I haven't taken part in WEP for ages, but I just had to take part this month; I love writing scary stories for Halloween! I haven't had as much time to work on this story as I would have liked, but it's turned out OK, I think.
Unrest in Peace
I wake to a loud bang above my head. I open my eyes to darkness; squinting, my eyes adjust, and I see thin slivers of light shining through small gaps in the surface directly above me. It’s so close I can touch it. I reach up with my arms, and press my palms against the rough surface; wood. My heart begins to pound; where am I?
I lean up on my elbows and press my eye to one of the gaps in the wood, but all I see is light. I lie back down and feel around me; I’m in a wooden box, not much larger than my body. I press my palms against the lid and push; it doesn’t budge. My breath comes in short bursts as I scratch at the lid, ignoring the stabs of pain from splinters burrowing under my fingernails. I start banging on the wood, my heart p…
So here is my contribution to this month's WEP - Back of the Drawer. I've literally written and edited it in one day (today) so it's not great! I had such good intentions for this challenge, then I went and got ill so I've had to force myself to write it. Still, I'm pretty proud that I'm even posting anything, so it's a win in my eyes! Hope you all enjoy it, anyway.
Forgotten Life Coralina sighed. She’d just opened the garage door, and an unpleasant sight awaited her.
She carefully climbed over the junk on the floor so that she could reach the light switch. She switched it on, and sighed again. There was a reason she’d been putting this off for so long.
She rolled up her sleeves and surveyed the mess, trying to decide where to start. There was an old cabinet pushed up against the wall closest to her that looked as though she could have it cleared by lunchtime. Tripping over a couple of old toys on the way, she started clearing.
Celebrate the Small Things is a weekly bloghop now hosted by Lexa Cain. The idea is to post anything you want to celebrate from the last week, no matter how small.
This week I'm celebrating:
- I went to the cinema with Jamie yesterday, we went to see an anime film called "Your Name". It was really good, it was only showing once, so I'm glad we booked seats!
- I'm on nights now until I start my new job, so this week I'm celebrating sleep! I'm struggling to sleep during the day, and I'm so tired. Hopefully I'll get used to it soon!
