A beautiful sunrise graced the land the trees looked up at the awakening sun, and swayed in the light breeze. A single bird roamed in the wind as it passed a cliff edge.

The writer grunted crankily agreeing to Dot’s repetitive exclamation, rubbing his head his eyes just about adjusting to the light.

“Decent. Ha!” The writer threw his head back facetiously, rolling his eyes at Dot. “I can’t afford decent at my wage, unsuccessful writers get squat, Mrs Larsson I assure you I—,” Dot interrupted him.

“John please call me Dot, I insist.” Mrs Larsson handed John his tea, whilst she smiled at him.

 The room was minimalistic, the walls sprayed white and an old Victorian window faced them. A slight smell of burnt bread from the bakery below, low on customers the chef’s brow protruded sweat dreading the next time the landlord would come round. The writer glared at the parchment ready for the story to unfold…
