Stupid O’Clock…

Awake really early…

This morning I was wide awake at Stupid O’Clock… OK, so it was more like 5am, but it was way too early.

It all started with an idea for a picture book manuscript that just had to be written down. I snuck out of bed while it was still dark and wrote it down with the light from our blue-tongue lizards terrarium on the back of some notes I had printed out for another project. It’s a miracle I can actually read this! When it was written down, I slipped back in to bed.

Not much later, the first two chapters came in to my head for an new chapter book. Originally I was going to work on this for ChaBooCha Lite in September, but it looks like that story has other ideas! Around 5:30am, I found myself sitting at the computer writing these chapters. I didn’t dare put the kettle on in case it woke the boys, both needing their sleep, so I wrote unaided by a cup of tea.

I don’t usually write early in the morning, but for some reason this morning, these ideas simply wouldn’t let me sleep. I know there are some authors who swear by early morning writing sessions, but they don’t usually work for me.

Anyway, it’s a good feeling knowing that this story has been started, although I need to work on another idea for ChaBooCha Lite…
