Write what you know

235 police car 839062I’m not in the mood to write today. Not sure why, it’s a mild day, albeit a bit damp, and my feet are soggy but it’s not raining so I should take advantage. Can’t write if the paper gets wet and then I’d wish I could.

And I have deadline. What was it Douglas Adams said? Oh yes, he loved the sound as they wooshed by, or something like that, but I stick to mine.

So, 3000 words by midnight. Yep, I can do that. I’ve done it every NaNoWriMo for the past five years, but any topic? That’s hard. I prefer being given a theme, or a prompt at least.

Oh look, boy, there’s a blue flashing light… and another… three? Come on, Toby, pick up speed.

I’m not one to rubber-neck but they say to write what you know.
