81 Words Writing Competition

Hello readers!

Tonight I’ve entered another competition, 81 words, the rules are as the title implies, 81 words.  Here is my submission:

Matthew

“Matthew, can you say Daddy?” Matthew stares blankly.

“Matthew, can you say Mummy?” Matthew looks to Mummy and babbles “Mum, Mum”.

“Matthew, say Daddy” Matthew smiles.

“Matthew, DAD-DY” Matthew’s attention has gone, he moves onto all fours and crawls away.

Daddy has now given up, he heads down the stairs.

Mummy picks up her child “Matthew, say Daddy” Matthew looks to the stairs “Da-da!”

Mummy runs down the stairs with him. “Say it again” Matthew pauses and then babbles “Mum, Mum”.

Short but sweet and from personal experience this is more close to non fiction than fiction, I think all parents have gone through something similar

I am writer, writer am I. Mum of 2 cats and 2 children. Wife of James of Tameside. Delving deeper, blogging is new to me but writing isn't. I loved writing as a child, loved making up silly stories, they came very easily to me. I studied Screenwriting for Film and TV at university and gained a 2:1 BA honours for it but then never did anything else with it. I struggle a lot with motivating myself and with now having 2 cats plus kids that motivation went right out of the window....up until recently. A friend had suggested starting a blog and so I set up on WordPress and my motivation came flying back into my life like it had always been there! There are days where I'm either too tired to write but I am always thinking of my main project - writing a children's novel. So that's progress right?
