So, here’s my second story of the month. I’m not sure how I feel about it – I left it a bit last minute (I started it about half an hour ago, and it’s just past 11 p.m. now) but I have a feeling that’s how things are going to go for me. It’s also a little lighter than what I usually write, but I like the picture I used, so there’s that.
Also, no, I haven’t managed to look at a lot of the others because my internet hates me (well, Chinese internet hates everyone in general) and I’m having some serious issues even getting around the storyaday site, never mind wordpress. Hopefully I can sort it out this weekend when exams are over .
I wasn’t sure I was going to update this blog again this time. But, as usual, I’ve given in – so we’ll see how long this lasts.
A little about me then, for those of you who I haven’t met (a lot of people, I think): I’m Charlotte, I’m a student and currently, I’m in China – which is why my timing on the site might seem a little off sometimes. I tried this for the first time last May and managed four days before I stopped writing (which was better than last September – I wrote nothing!) so hopefully I’ll do better this year. (I’m hoping I’ll last at least a week.) This year has, so far, been poor as far as my writing productivity goes – again, hopefully this will help.
I have already finished my story for today (it’s nearly 10 p.m. here already!), though I didn’t manage the 100 words that were suggested in today’s prompt. I clocked in at 106 . I’m going to leave it here – and though I have to be up obscenely early for a class tomorrow so I’m going to bed soon, I will probably creep on everyone else’s blogs when you’re all sleeping. Oh, time zones~

I wrote this yesterday, but didn’t get around to posting it because my day was ridiculously busy. I cannot wait until exams are over; wayyyy too much work right now. (Hence why I still have to write my story for today… and then post it later, hopefully!)
Still, this story is 90% dialogue. I was thinking it might be confusing, but it shouldn’t be; there’s only two characters!

Yay, I’ve managed two days running now! I didn’t use the prompt again today (I’m never good at writing stories out of memories), since I definitely have never seen this happen before in my life. Also, it’s not fantasy, so that’s new! (I am worried it’s more a scene than a story, however. Sigh…)

I tried, I tried so hard to make the prompt length of 1,200 words today… and I ended up exceeding it by 99 -_-. Still, if you don’t read the last section, it comes out as under so you could… do that, maybe? Anyway, here goes, more or less my first short story:
