They say 'write what you know'. That clearly means I must write a story from the point of view of a housekeeper in a small town hospital in which a gibbering epidemic of madness heralds the rise of the great Cthlulu.

Most 'end of the world' stories seem to start with something along the lines of "this could be the end of the world as we know it", but that's not where the story starts.

The story starts when a man staggers through the automatic doors, snow crusted in his hair and blood streaming from his eyes, blathering nonsense. He stumbles, missing the dull gray vinyl chairs entirely, before falling face-first onto the floor. The only coherent thing about him is his Alberta Health Care card clutched between two trembling white fingers clearly suffering from exposure to the elements.

The next day, the main character comes in to work to find the hospital in pandemic lockdown mode. Under emergency situations, you're supposed to bring your emergency nametag card, but it's a small town where everyone knows everyone and the rules are ignored.

She goes to work, starting the day by cleaning the ER, where the once white walls are now covered in bloody runes.

THIS IS ABSOLUTELY WRITING WHAT I KNOW. Why didn't I come up with this pre-November? I could blow this story out of the water.

TWENTY PAGES. Too bad it's not twenty pages in twenty four hours. I ate an apple. Uh. With candy on it. So it probably wasn't all that healthy, all things considered, but at least apple, right?
