Camp NaNoWriMo 2019 Day 01


Camp NaNoWriMo 2019

Hello July and Hello Camp NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month)

So I recently lost my creative streak, after working full time and having to do extra hours when a work colleague was on long term sickness. So I have decided to try and find my mojo by participating in this months Camp NaNo.

Sadly it was a poor show today and I only managed 270 words. Out of it I did create a piece of Flash Fiction (100 words or less) called ‘Death of an Emperor’ see below.

190701 Death of an Emperor 02

Death of an Emperor.

Three bees bow low in respect to the Emperor. He lay exhausted. Broken and dusty were his wings, the once bright colours muted with edges now tattered and torn. He had been blown off course by a great tempest, far away from his beloved Queen. Yet the bees would not leave him to die alone.

The wind calmed, and the Emperor took his last breath.  Aged wings closed for the last time. An army of ants came and carried him to the shade of the old oak, where he would rest eternally and become one with the earth.
