I Want My Real Dad features Mary, a soon-to-be bride whose stepfather has raised her since she was a toddler. The prompt Niddy set was ‘growing up with Nigel’ and I used Nigel as Mary’s biological father. In the story he’s raising the delicate issue of who will walk her down the aisle.
Spookily, the day after I sent in my story, I saw something on the internet which very closely resembled a scene from the story. If it had been an old report I’d have assmed I once saw it and had stored it in my subconscious and then recreated it without realising. As it was a very recent report, I knew that couldn’t have been the case. My memory is bad, but not that bad!
