Oh it's a good start to the day...
I have just started to write a story that's been rattling around my brain for about three years. It's going to be a dark one!
Here's the very first paragraph:-
I sit on the hospital bed and wait for them to come for me. The smell of disinfectant is overpowering. It’s too clean, too sterile, as if it intends to wipe out every living thing from the face of the earth. Perhaps it should start with me.
There’s nothing here to look at except the other patients. I try to avoid looking at them, not because it’s rude to stare, but because I don’t want their attention returned to me.
