So I have two days.... well, one and a half to be precise seeing as how today is almost done... before the start of that writing challenge that I signed up for.... for all the wrong reasons I may add. Actually, I take that back. I signed up because I recognized the contest from last year... and since I had signed up last year, I figured the reasons I had then were still as good this year. I am yet to recall what those reasons were... mostly for a lack of trying. I've been too busy trying to come up with a workable plot and trying not to think of the huge obstacles that are looming in the near future. I have not had much success in either. The plots have been many... almost always being generated by my plot generator during my regular plotting time... my morning shower. Due to too many of the previous nights having been late nights... and the consequential waking up late on the next mornings, my plotting times have been severely limited leading to stunted plot development and hence I have a lot of ugly half-plots lying around in my head.... If only I could gather them and form one albeit disjointed plot. Unfortunately, too many of them can hardly be recognized as plots. Couple that with the fact that the filing system in my brain needs a major overhaul.... and basically I am left with the sad realization that all I have for the contest is one long title and a bunch of naysayers that have taken residence in my head. Still, I have two.... no, one and a half days, to come up with a good story... forget good, a story, any story at this point will do.
Don't get me started on the obstacles.... I could be writing about those well into November, leaving me no time to focus on the contest.
