I joined a writing competition.
Write a short story 6 days. Easy.
Write said story with an assigned genre and objects. Okay.
Said genre assigned = action/adventure. Mother Fucker.
I have never written action or adventure. Ever. So I started brainstorming and got a few ideas right off the bat.
I then told Lyla because even though she's only 7, she's an aspiring writer also. What can I say...!
She had some ideas too.
My first story which was supposed to be an adventure turned out to be a love story - go figure...
My second story went from thriller to adventure to... heartwarming...
My third story is currently a blank doc. It will come to me, I suppose. Probably an hour before the deadline.
I just think it's funny that my genre is so different from me but this contest is really fun. Hopefully I can knock someting out and make it to the next round. Stay tuned for more updates and for failed adventure short stories ;)
