Writing Prompt: The Midnight Hour

It’s just past midnight. I’m tired, I’ve barely slept this week and I can’t sleep.

Try something different. I know we’re all busy, but one of the hardest things to do is to write continuously. One night this week, stay up, have a cup of tea at your side and start writing at midnight, when it’s quiet, when no one is awake but you and keep going. Write for one hour, get some sleep and in the morning, read what you’re written. Then write a summary of what you’ve written. Add a critique. Is it different from what you’d normally write when you’re in a hurry and you have the distractions of the day nipping at your heels?
