NaNoWriMo snippet

Bookish Stuff / Friday, November 9th, 2012

Today is Day 9 of NaNoWriMo and I haven’t yet started to write, but ideas are brewing up top.  I’ll be doing some night writing to see if that agrees with me.  I decided to share a little snippet of my story.  What do you think comes after It was 3am…?

She woke suddenly in the middle of the night.  She looked over at her husband rolled up in a deep narcotic sleep.  She felt her side of the bed as she got up.  There was a large damp circle of wetness that had seeped into her nightgown.  She went to the toilet to urinate and reflected on what to do next.  As she pulled down her underwear she noticed the little beads of water running continuously but slowly down her leg.  It was if the faucet had a drip that wouldn’t stop.  It was 3am…..

    1. Family is encouraging me all the way. I4m stuck at home with a torn achilles tendon so my work shedule has been reduced to a few phone lessons a week. Hobbling around on crutches isn’t fun so I spend lots of time reading, blogging, and surfing the net in general, and now writing in NaNoWriMo, but it is a dream come true. I really never thought I4d write so much. Thanks for the support! Hope writing goes better today than yesterday. 🙂

  1. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I read this, but I was really gripped, and definitely want to know what comes next! I love the gradual piecing together of elements and the build up of curiosity in what’s happening. Have you shared any other writing online? I’d love to read it! 🙂

    1. No I haven’t. I’m a little shy about that for the moment. However I’m still working on my book when I have free time which I don’t for the moment and won’t have for a while. Can’t wait for the Christmas holidays. Thanks for reading it.Good luck tomorrow!

      1. Well when you do share/publish, I’d love to read it- I enjoyed your writing style in this snippet. You will definitely have earned your christmas break this year it sounds like!
