I’ve been thinking about doing one of those 30 day writing challenges, but I looked though several pages of suggestions, and nothing struck my fancy. As I was drifting off to sleep, an idea popped into my head. So now, rather than sleep, I’m going to get the idea down here, so I know where I’m going with it.
As I started to write this, it was still Saturday, May 7. I’ll set the challenge to begin on Sunday, May 8, and run until Tuesday, June 7. We’ll see how well I stick to that.
The premise: Each day, I will tell a portion of a story. Each portion will not necessarily be told in order, but by the time it is all done, there should be at least a coherent narrative. Each day’s segment will establish something new about one of the characters or about the setting.
Here’s where my friends and readers come in: After each segment, I would love feedback from you. It may influence future segments.
Ok, now that I have that down, I must retire for the night. Mother’s Day is upon us, and I need to try to rest up so I can try to make the day pleasant for the mothers in my life.
I’ll leave you with this, the first (pending) line of Sunday’s Day 1 installment.
It wasn’t even that nice of a jacket.
