Well, the end of the month passed. I’m sorry to say I didn’t manage to write the next great American novel. I didn’t even manage to get past the 2000 word-count. I did prbly write about 5000 words, when you consider the false starts I made toward the effort and then scrapped when the story didn’t work out.

I found I had no issue coming up with characters for the story. Nor did I have an issue coming up with the setting for the story, the location, the time, etc. Creating time to work on it wasn’t a huge issue, either.

The issue I came across was creating a plot I found compelling. I can create stories with the best of them…but one which has enough complexity to cover 50000 words is really a bigger challenge than I suspected.

I’ll have to keep the event in mind for next year, tho.
