Spring Forward, Fall Back*

An hour’s grace, because the clocks just went back.

What will you do with that extra hour? Sleep?! Get on with you, don’t you have a short story on time to write?

One whole extra hour! get the pen and paper out, fire up the laptop, get writing!

* Spring Forward, Fall Back: A useful reminder of which way to turn the clock, even if it does rely on the American term for autumn, Also a rather sweet book by Sheila Otiz Taylor, the author I was talking about when A. misheard and thought I’d said Shelord and her Tailor, giving rise to my first ever short story. Many mishearings later I still find them a useful inspiration for writing.
