Insane in the Membrane

Monday night: 4 hours sleep
Tuesday night: 4 hours sleep
Wednesday night: 3 hours sleep

Total: 3 days, 11 hours sleep

So why am I not tired?

It's insa-- No, I'm insane. Went to bed last night, but was thinking I really wanted to write something for hp100. Figured out a way to sort of get around the week's theme and sort of make it work within the theme (sort of). Got out of bed, came back to the computer. Wrote. Submit. Went back to bed. Realized I left out an important bit. Jumped out of bed, went back to the computer, edited the post. Back to bed.

So, an hour after I was supposed to be asleep, wasn't the least bit tired. Stayed up another hour and a half, then finally just turned my light off. Fell asleep sometime after. Woke up an hour *before* my alarm, feeling wide awake and mostly rested.

Insane. I should be falling over, dead tired.


Title: An Addition to Hogwarts, A History
Word Count: 100, per Word
Characters: Hermione
A/N: I wasn't really interested in writing founder foo, but I didn't want to miss a week either, so I got creative! Hope it's close enough to count. It is an exerpt... kind of.

Hermione arrived at the library in search of one of the copies of Hogwarts: A History. She knew where they were kept, and briskly strode there. Selecting one copy at random, she opened to the first page, intending to scan the table of contents.

The graffiti she found made her stop.

Snap! Prissily she closed the book, replacing it and selecting one of the others. Open... same defacement.

She checked another and another... all the same.

The last copy she held, frowning down at the addition. A sketch: girl with bushy-hair and giant buck-teeth. The artist's initials below it:

D.M.


The sad thing is, though I liked it last night, upon reading it this morning I have issues with it. Rough sentences, I shouldn't have used ellipses twice (I've been using them too much lately), and I would have rather not have used two colons in the same paragraph (though that one was because I needed to remove a word to make 100). Oh well, at least I still like the idea.
