(This was a writing challenge set for me by my very good friend Andi McGinty. He Skyped me late one night while the infamous summer riots were taking place here in the UK in August 2011. We set ourselves the challenge of writing a short story in under an hour. This is the result (it took me 26 minutes, in case you were wondering.). I read this story to my pupils sometimes as an example of writing for fun, for sound effects, for the pleasure of using words.)

OK, at this point in the 30 Day Vlogging Challenge I hiccuped, got distracted, became lazy, or whatever you want to call it. I was still shooting videos each day but not getting around to uploading and blogging them. (The video I shot for today will be appearing above this post shortly). What the heck was going on?
