I would switch the order since you are starting with the closed eyes and closed finger position, so it would look like this.

Personally, if I were writing this, I wouldn't with the initial position because the open hinge describes the movement clearly enough (for me anyways). So this is how I would write WAKE UP if I were writing it myself.

I was about to write the sign for "wake up" in my language.  I thought the ASL one[1] would probably be similar, and it was, kind of.  But the order of the signs puzzles me.  Is it well written?

I'd like to check that before I write our sign.
