I awoke to see gentle rays of sunlight filtering into the tent.
I rubbed my sleepy eyes, not quite believing dawn could have broken.
I stained my ears, hearing the faint murmuring of people who were already moving around. I heard the crackle of the campfire and the morning songs of familiar birds.
It really was morning. And by some way of a miracle I had made it through the duration of the night without needed to pee! I smiled. Maybe I was finally overcoming my curse. Maybe I wouldn’t need to pee in the night again. Maybe I’d actually make it home alive!

Hi there! Want to find out what happens next? You can find the full story with all the juicy details over at my Patreon.
What is Patreon? you may ask. Well, Patreon is a platform where I upload exclusive content. By paying a small fee per month, you will gain access to loads of content.
It was a big decision for me to set this up but after careful consideration I felt it was the right thing to do. It allows me to be more creative and more honest, sharing stories I would never tell otherwise.
It also allows me to start earning from content creation. If you've been following me for a while now, you will know I don't do create content for the money. I write because I love it! But earning a small income from what I'm passionate about has its benefits. It allows me to travel more and put more effort into my work. I can actually justify spending countless hours planning content!
