Ever since the day the 24 hour short story was due (May 1), I have been plagued with terrible head pain. It started off as an annoying headache and then turned into a migraine. Luckily I have shots to help with the pain. Unfortunately, the shot didn’t completely get rid of the pain, just enough so that I didn’t have to stay in bed all day. I haven’t been able to get much writing done – yesterday I was too sleepy from the shot, and it’s been kind of hard to think while my head is pounding.
Today I feel a little better and managed to get some editing done on a story I’ve been working on. I also started reading The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks to pass the time. A book I would definitely recommend reading – it’s a good story, well written, and hard to put down.
As for the contest, I had a lot of fun! I managed to write the story quickly which gave me plenty of time to edit. I submitted it around 11pm – right around the time I was getting sleepy and couldn’t think straight anymore. I like the story I came up with and of course I hope it wins. If not, I’ve got plans to expand on it – I’ve already come up with ideas of what to write – and then I can submit it somewhere else. I’ve got six weeks to wait, which is right around the time I should be finding out about two other stories I submitted.
